Back in 1980, I had the honor of hearing “The Hawk” by New York native and flutists Dave Valentin. This record featured a cast of splendid players along with the captivating voice of Angel Bofill. Perhaps, while still going through various growing pains in developing the art and or the mishaps of discovering new artists, various jazz styles, and new instruments. I found Mr. Valentin’s music to display the virtues and of idyllic messenger with the vitality of a warrior, giving this young lad [at the time] the perfect antidote for my ongoing transformation of letting music find me.
