Flutist Pam Sklar has performed, toured and recorded with the music world's A-list, everyone from Diana Krall, with whom she performed at Carnegie Hall in 2009, to pianist Claude Bolling, tenor Andrea Bocelli, Dave Brubeck, ad Paul Simon.
I first had the pleasure of meeting Claude Bolling in New York in 1982, when I played his Suite (No. 1) with him informally (at the Parker Meridien and at a club). For 11 seasons, from 1984 to 2000, I toured internationally as solo flutist with his Claude Bolling Trio. The other solo instrument with us was guitar; either Larry Coryell, Jack Wilkins or Eric Franceries, depending on the year.
