To hear vintage C melody's playing JAZZ,
check out: Listen here
Scott Robinson plays a 1918 C mel exclusively on his 1999 album,
"Melody from the sky".Listen here.
Scotts latest album "Nucleus" also has one C mel track, very different from Melody from the sky. I'd call it "Esoteric" or spacey. Scott says there are more to come!
Gemma Farrell has a project up on sound cloud featuring a vintage C mel.
Rudy Weidoef is credited with begining the C mel craze in the 20s

For a modern style in C try "just maybe" by Natha n Haines
Visit Nathan Haines site
Nathan's latest album "Sound travels" is listed as Rap/hip hop.
A marketing blunder in my book as it has no rap and little relationship to
hip hop. More spacey and esoteric to me!
Chip Shelton's latest "smooth" CD, "Imbued with memories", f
eatures C flute, C tenor sax and C soprano sax. Summit records.

When I first began to play sax, finding a record to listen too required standing in a second hand record store for hours thumbing thru and listening to 5 seconds of each track to see if I wanted to buy it.
