Harold Jones, Flutist
Let Us Break Bread Together

"Among today's legion of distinguished flutists, Mr. Jones has little to fear from being compared to the very best in terms of training, experience or exceptional skill. His breath control is prodigious, his production is smooth as silk and his musical instincts are refined in a way to make everything he plays sound utterly spontaneous." The New York Times.

"All of the pieces are short - the longest being Howard Hanson's Serenade at 5:27 - but the performances due to Jones' deeply emotional expressiveness, technical proficiency, and purity of tone and Valentine's sympathetic accompaniments are so committed as to be completely absorbing. The sound is well-balanced between the two instruments. The panorama of shifting moods of these disparate pieces, because of the passion and sensitivity of the performers, possesses a definite coherence. Jones is a highly original and gifted artist and anyone who enjoys solo flute recitals should not miss this release. Recommended." Fanfare.

"This is a light-hearted and pleasant disc which features a wide range of encore-length pieces." High Performance Review.
