What Are Your Favorite Instrumental Tunes?

The subject of instrumentals came up in another thread, so I thought it might be fun to see what instrumental tunes everyone enjoys. Instrumentals cover a wide range of genres when you start to think about it; classical (of course), movie soundtracks, pop, jazz, big band oldies, blues, country, rock, and many instrumental versions of your favorite song titles, too.

 

So what instrumental music do you like? What are your favorite tunes or instrumental versions of your favorite songs? Multiple tunes and multiple genres are okay. And, if you have favorite on youtube, feel free to post the link so that we can listen, too!

It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere. - Keith Richards

Bouree' by Jethro Tull, really sweet tune. Ian Anderson's

flute work is very tasty. Think that one is on Stand Up?

If nothing else, watch the young lady play the flute solo to open the piece. It's haunting.

 

These are kids playing. Turn it up.

Thanks Volta.Lived in LA metro area for 38 years. there's a small manufacturing concern

owned by an English owner & staff who were associates of Joe Meek's. He is now taking

some of those ideas and creating peddles for professional players to expand their guitar sound

repetoire. A very dear friend has two of them, they're quite pricey, but great.

Joe Meek became one the greatest makers of guitar effects, and recording producers ever.
For those that play the instrument he is an icon.
