John Sangster composed the music for the little-known film "Fluteman" in 1982. The film may not be high in your mind, but the music performed by Don Burrows (flute), and eight other jazz players makes wonderful listening apart from the film.

This is the line-up:
Don Burrows: concert and alto flutes, clarinet and fife
Errol Buddle: oboe, piccolo and alto saxophone
Col Loughnan: flute and tenor saxophone Roy Ainsworth: bass-clarinet and baritone saxophone
George Golla: electric and acoustic guitars
Tony Ansell: electric piano and synthesiser
Chris Qua: bass
Alan Turnbull: Drums and finger-cymbals
John Sangster: percussions, which include marimba, vibraphone, bell-tree, glockenspiel, vibraslap and tambourine

The CD comes with brief track by track program notes written by John Sangster.
