AllMusic Review by

Travel with Ron Korb on a world tour of flute music on Flute Traveler. Korb has assembled a fascinating collection of original pieces played on flutes from a dozen different countries. It's amazing how the simple technology of the flute can be recreated in so many different ways and how Korb can find a voice for each. The pieces are written in a manner that reflects each flute's country of origin, including a Chilean ocarina, Japanese shinobue, Chinese ryuteki and Moroccan fipple flute. Korb's beautiful and simple solo improvisations explore the richest tonal qualities of all the instruments.
