Paul Horn

When one evaluates Paul Horn's career, it is as if he were two people, pre- and post-1967. In his early days, Horn was an excellent cool-toned altoist and flutist, while later he became a new age flutist whose mood music is often best used as background music for meditation. Horn started on piano when he was four and switched to alto at the age of 12. After a stint with the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra on tenor, Horn was Buddy Collette's replacement with the popular Chico Hamilton Quintet (1956-1958), playing alto, flute, and clarinet. He became a studio musician in Los Angeles, but also found time during 1957-1966 to record cool jazz albums for Dot (later reissued on Impulse), World Pacific, Hi Fi Jazz, Columbia, and RCA, and he participated in a memorable live session with Cal Tjader in 1959. In addition, in 1964, Horn recorded one of the first Jazz Masses, utilizing an orchestra arranged by Lalo Schifrin. In 1967, Paul Horn studied transcendental meditation in India and became a teacher. The following year, he recorded unaccompanied flute solos at the Taj Mahal (where he enjoyed interacting with the echoes), and would go on to record in the Great Pyramid, tour China (1979) and the Soviet Union, record using the sounds of killer whales as "accompaniment," and found his own label Golden Flute. Most of Paul Horn's work since the mid-'70s is focused on new age rather than jazz. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Actually, a lot of Paul's work is missing here.
His definitive new age compilation is called traveler.
When I included him in my playlist that was what I was
hoping to hear.
That is a wonderful suggestion. In fact, that was the piece of work that I was looking for. I co-sign Doreen's suggestion.

When I had my cancer surgery 5 yrs ago I had Paul Horn's music in the Great Pyramid playing in my room post surgery and it helped greatly with my recovery. The nurses loved it! Hopefully Pandora will bring that work on board for others to appreciate.
How about the Peace album?

Yhea!!!his recording in the Piramides are my favorite Sons.His New Age are the Best...
Everybody needs to send Pandora an email at: suggest-musi c @ p a n d o r a . c o m
and tell them to add Paul Horn - Inside the Taj Mahal. Most definitely his greatest work. That is his one "classic" album. And if you haven't heard it, it's highly recommended. VERY meditative, and beautiful.
Kindly add Horn's "INSIDE THE TAJ MAHAL" FOR ALL OF US NEW AGERS. TKS
Horn's haunting strains echoeing (sp?) inside the Taj Mahal, answering the indigenous caretaker's melodic chants were a memorable experience that made me feel, time and time again, that I, too, sat quietly rapt not only in his pure sound, but somehow touched the infinite. An experience I return to often after purchasing his album.
I actually wanted his meditation music
where can I find the recordings of; titles: In China, At Taj Mahal and his new age phase etc... I have been searching to replace In China for years as I love that period of his expansion into musical experimentat i o n if you will...
email me: stagerightjb @ l i v e . c o m with any info or recordings. Thanks jb
Paul Horn at the Taj Mahal is incredible
love his paul horn in china
met paul horn way back when at the leon russel studio in tulsa talks just like he plays great stuff.....
JOHN AMES SAYS: I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THE COOL WEST COAST SOUNDS OF PAUL HORN!!!!
Please add some of the "inside" recordings: Inside the Taj Mahal or Inside the Grand Canyon, etc. Thank you.
