Post subject:  Re: Whistle Recordings

The above is a list of recorded albums I'm aware of which are devoted exclusively or primarily to the whistle on all (or nearly all) tracks. Or mixed offerings from people I think of as mainly whistlers. This is just my personal list, and not intended as authoritative or exhaustive.

The focus here is on ITM and ITM-influenced playing, excluding other whistle traditions such as Kwela that might merit separate discographies.

Obviously, there are many other fine recordings of whistle playing contained as tracks on other albums, or featured prominently in arrangements. Those albums I keep in a separate (and very messy) list, which I might consider posting later.

This sticky discography is just for reference. So I'll keep the thread locked for the moment while I double and triple check it, then maybe open it up for comment, additions, corrections, etc.

Cheers ...
