Description of the CD:
" Husband's tone and technique are those seldom heard on jazz flute, reminiscent of earlier Moe Koffman stylings." - Walle Larsson
"I want to congratulate you for your interpretation and your music sensibility. Bravo to the pianist, bassist and drummer. As a Bach lover, I appreciated also your other interpretations! Thank you for playing my music, I'm proud and honored." - Sincerely, Claude Bolling
Diversity has been the hallmark of Julie Husband's professional musical odyssey-manifested in the instruments she plays and the musical styles she has inhabited. Julie has teamed up with Winnipeg's most sought after pianist Will Bonness, Winnipeg's busiest bassist Nenad Zdjelar and drummer extraordinaire Tony Cyre to present Claude Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano and some jazzed up Bach - works that will stimulate and satisfy both classical and jazz audiences. The Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano has seven contrasting movements.  There is a constant dialogue between the jazz and classical elements creating contrasting moods.  Many believe that it is impossible to fuse classical music and jazz but, Claude Bolling has created a work that seems to stimulate and satisfy both classical and jazz lovers. The Julie Husband Quartet has taken the Bolling Suite to new heights and combined with the jazzed up Bach will create an interesting mix for the listener.
Artist Bio:
Julie's two-decade career as a jobbing musician, music instructor, clinic leader and adjudicator is founded on her outstanding instrumental proficiency with all the instruments in the flute, clarinet, saxophone and bassoon families.

A graduate of Manitoba's renowned Brandon University (Bachelor of Music), Julie's high performance standards and advanced technical knowledge have combined to make her a first-call hire for gigs as diverse as Rod Stewart and Winnipeg's Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

Colleagues and employers alike routinely use words like "exceptional" and "superb" to describe Julie's peerless musicianship, commitment to her work and almost supernatural sight reading.

Her participation in the Artists in the Schools program in Manitoba is one example of Julie's interest in exploring all musical frontiers as part of her craft. As one half of Duo a la Carte (with pianist/percussionist Heidi Peters) Julie has performed on behalf of this successful in-school initiative since 1988.

The sheer range of talented musicians and performers Julie has played with - and for - is truly breathtaking: Red Skelton, Kenny Rogers, Arturo Sandoval, Dianne Schuur, Bill Watrous, The Wyrd Sisters, Wayne Newton and Winnipeg jazz icon Ron Paley would represent a short list.

On the teaching side, Julie has champions as well. A band instructor in Winnipeg for 12 years, her colleagues underscore her impeccable musical credentials and easygoing attitude toward those around her.

Julie's musical muse has taken her from classical to summer theatre to jazz, with the latter category including work in renowned Winnipeg based outfit Saxology Canada and The Swing Cats, having recorded "Every Night and Every Day" with them. Radio broadcasts have included a flute and marimba concert for CBC and a Wyrd Sisters recorded-live show for the national network's Arts Encounters series.

Julie Husband. Versatile, committed, uncompromising.
