Groovin' In The Grove
A few days before we made this video I had a dream where I was standing in a house and a woman came in and said, "I have a word for you from God. 'Groove in the Grove' ".
I woke up thinking how cool is God!

Tropical Greetings from Erik the flutemakers
A cool melodic jazzy scale. Anything you do sounds great. This is not a major scale so you won’t be playing songs, but you will be improvising some cool laid back groovin’ jazz. Good for the novice who just wants to play jazz and not spend 10 years learning it.
Flute playing is uplifting and will take you to new heights.
Make a Joyful Noise
My first recording with composer Josiah Sampson, my talented son. Featuring Bass Bamboo Sax, Soprano Bamboo Sax, Irish flute, Irish Penny Whistle and Double flutes all in the key of D.
Cave Dweller's Song
The original flute was found in a cave and now sits in The Arizona State Museum in Tucson. It is said that this flute style was Cocopeli's flute that was drawn on cliff walls and caves.
In the spring of 2009 while Erik walked around his bamboo plantation singing and playing his guitar early in the morning, a mocking bird burst out in song near him right in key. The bird stayed around for a few weeks and some recordings were made with the above flutes. Enjoy!
