Tys (Thijs) Van Leer
Following my own advice, ( see link to Hubpage) I attempted to declutter some drawers in a spare bedroom this weekend.
I came across a stack of audio cassettes and of course, decided to listen to them before donating them to charity.
Much to my delight, I rediscovered a tape circa early 1970s called "Nice To Have Met You" by Tys Van Leer.
Tys, a Dutch musician, singer, and composer is best known for being a member of the group "Focus". His captivating and phenomenal talent as an accomplished flautist will keep you spellbound and longing for more! Tys has been called a "melodic genius" .
The Youtube video below is a song called "Hocus Pocus" Tys was in the group "Focus."
His extraordinary talents as a classical artist are well demonstrated in his later projects entitled "Introspection" and "Introspection 2 & 3."
