Wow. He's really rocking that third octave.
It might be an artifact of the vinyl but there
are times that I'm hard pressed to believe he's
not whistling just with his lips.

Our own MTGuru isn't too shabby in that department. I've unsuccessfully lobbied him to post some clips. Can I get a witness?

That was some pretty good jazz penny whistle. I'd like to hear more. If I could only find a copy of John Coltrane: the Penny Whistle Tapes...

MTGuru mentioned Roland Kirk on the whistle strap thread
so I thought I would look for an appropriate clip.
The magic starts at 2:25 or so.

Wow, It looks like he created his
