REVIEWS: EJAZZ NEWS REVIEW: Fluteus Maximus melds a mixture of original, well known, and obscure jazz choices that work well as a calling card for any audience looking to enjoy jazz with a bit of bluesy overtone. A good old fashioned romp in the listenable and enjoyable lane. Fluteus Maximus truly got the memo that music is supposed to bring joy to others. In a world where anger, aggression and scandal are a part of our daily news, turn you dial over to the Fluteus Maximus channel and soak in the good vibes. Brad Bennett - Soundstage: When I was in college, Herbie Mann was a big part of the music scene. His version of Memphis blues crossed boundaries to successfully mix soul, pop, and jazz, and just about everyone could enjoy it. When I played this new album by flutist Mindy Canter, it popped the cork on a lot of happy memories. Though classically trained, Canter visits the same eclectic mix that Mann pursued. In fact, she plays some tunes closely associated with Mann, such as "Do It Again" and "Watermelon Man." A virtuoso herself, Canter has a backing group that grooves right along with her, heart and soul. Yahoo Reviews: Flutist Mindy Canter charms, soothes, and absorbs the listener in sweet melodic sounds. Her third recording Fluteus Maximus is a selection of original tunes and covers that bring out the beautiful curves of the flute's chordal forms permeating a heavenly sonorous. Produced by Canter, Fluteus Maximus is a timeless piece that inspires serenity in the soul. Chris Spector: Record Review MINDY CANTER/Fluteus Maximus: From black jazz in church basements to duets with Yo Yo Ma, this flutatious lady has done it all. This set finds her going face to face with spontaneity as the whole thing was recorded in one take over four hours, old school style as the church basement black jazz opening track attests. Heartfelt funky stuff that takes you from "Over the Rainbow" to "16 Tons" while tipping the cap to Herbie Mann and more. You know a lot of the songs and probably haven't had such a good time with this kind of stuff since before disco crept into everything. Clearly one funky good time. Mindy Canter is reviewed by The Borderland Mindy Canter - Fluteus Maximus Flautist Mindy Canter is a musician who enjoys pushing the boundaries of her instrument and music. Over her varied career she has worked with Albert King, Michael Bloomfield, Boz Scaggs, It's A Beautiful Day and Yo Yo Ma as well as many other international treasures. A rich mixture of jazz, blues, soul and r'n'b, and perhaps a little rock and roll too for seasoning, is full of good vibes and happy moments. Mindy Canter takes me back to the 70s when jazz flautist Herbie Mann was also mixing musical genres to great success. She has great charm, good humour and unassuming but impressive musicality.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 29, 2016From Cloverdale, CA

I gave MIndy, and she accepted, the extremely difficult challenge of playing her flute with a DJ during my wedding. When she came on stage, the crowded stopped and looked at her. Then the song "Big Pimpin' " by Jay Z started playing and she played along to the tune. The crowded loved it and began dancing. Somehow, someway, she pulled it off. Thanks for the awesome memories Mindy.
