Jim Walker - Flutist

...
Jim Walker: Renaissance Man of the Flute
...
From jazz to pop to classical, television to film to the concert hall, Jim Walker has never met a crowd that didn't love his powerful, "stand and deliver" performances. His star began to rise when Jim was named Associate Principal Flute in the Pittsburgh Symphony after a stint playing in the US Military Academy Band at West Point. He quickly gained the admiration of colleagues and audiences in Pittsburgh and set his sights on Principal Flute jobs. After eight years he won the Principal Flute position in the Los Angeles Philharmonic and never looked back.
To be Principal Flute of a major orchestra is to sit at the pinnacle of the profession. Most flutists who reach that height are content to spend the rest of their careers there, but Jim but Jim felt an eagerness and aspiration to move his music-making forward yet again. After seven successful seasons of performing, recording, and touring with the Los Angeles Philharmonic-during which time the New York Philharmonic briefly borrowed him as Principal Flute for their 1982 South American tour-Jim left the orchestra, diving off the mountaintop into the world of jazz, studio recording and a commitment to teaching.
Jazz had been Jim's earliest musical loves, and he was inspired to get back to it by LA's lively club scene. After a few years of avid listening in dives, gaining confidence undercover in the practice room, he organized his jazz quartet Free Flight. Flute, piano, bass, and drums playing a unique fusion of jazz and classical music, propelled Free Flight to take the music world by storm. Jim's unique combination of vision and determination pushed the group to multiple appearances on The Tonight Show and The Today Show and brought them a number one record (Slice of Life). By the time Jean-Pierre Rampal-the granddaddy of modern classical flutists-called "Jimmy" his "favorite jazz flute player" in the 1990's, Jim was a bona fide "jazz flute man".
Life has been equally good for Jim Walker in LA's famed studio scene. Until June of 2010, he was a first-call studio flutist for the better part of two decades; his bold, expressive playing can be heard on hundreds of soundtracks and commercial recordings.
...
Dynamic soloist, legendary orchestral and studio musician, celebrated jazz flutist, and an inspiration to countless students worldwide; Jim Walker is living proof that with enough creativity and determination, one can reach the stars. He is a living legend, and a true Renaissance Man of the Flute.

Jim Walker
Few other flutists in history have made such indelible marks in so many musical circles. From classical to conservatory to orchestral to jazz to pop, television to film to the concert hall, Jim Walker has never met an audience that didn't love his powerful, "stand and deliver" performances.

Having retired from the world of movie soundtracks, is now has raised his teaching commitment to a new level. He is continuing to fill his students' lives with music (for more than five decades) just as his own parents-Bob, a jazz clarinetist and public school band director, and Barbara, a church organist-filled his upbringing in Greenville, Kentucky, with piano and flute lessons. He went on to become a graduate and "Distinguished Alumnus" of the University of Louisville as well as the University's first "Alumni Fellow" from the School of Music. To this day Jim credits a parade of flute teachers with helping him rise through the ranks, from Sarah Fouse and Francis Fuge in Kentucky to the Metropolitan Opera's Harold Bennett, the Philadelphia Orchestra's James Pellerite, and internationally renowned flutist and conductor Claude Monteux.
