Review of AVE Concert at Presidio of San Francisco
by Thomas Busse
Sunday Feb. 21st. 2010
If Judith Cloud's need for kitsch had a silver lining, it was the invitation of flutist Blue to the concert and the welcome chance for him to perform improvisations on his collection of Native-American flutes, assisted by percussionist Katja Cooper. The flutes were very beautiful, as was Blue's huge tone. Especially impressive was a sort of double recorder allowing him to play two melodies at once. Whereas Blue merely provided New Atge ambiance in Cloud's choral trilogy, his performance of solo flute music involved some inscrutable reverential gesture. I do not know what it means, but I do not doubt its sincerity.

Blue's music crosses barriers and penetrates the heart and spirit in unprecedented ways. Playing unrehearsed and in the moment, Blue brings an intensity and authenticity that is unsurpassed by players of his instrument. He plays flutes in all sizes and keys, including single, double, and triple flutes, and can play with any band, orchestra or theatre group, deftly molding his flute work to fit any style of music being played today.
Blue has played at such venues as Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, CA, The Masonic Auditorium, San Francisco, CA Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, CA, The Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA St. John The Divine Cathedral in New York City, and the opening ceremony for World Environment Day in Oakland, and in Europe, Thailand, and China. He was also featured on the BBC, ABC TV and Public Television " A Blue Moment " . In addition to his professional career, he is a dedicated volunteer in service to his community and was named Bread and Roses performer of the year for 2002.
He is available for weddings, commitment ceremonies, baptisms, memorial services, schools, hospitals, special music for churches, motivational talks, birthday and all other parties, house concerts, cultural presentations, workshops, and retreats of all types. His playing has also contributed to many forms of art and dance presentations.
