Grammy-winning jazz flutist, New Age music pioneer Paul Horn dies at 84

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Grammy-winning jazz flutist and New Age music pioneer Paul Horn has died. He was 84.

Horn's son, Marlen, says his father died Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia, after a brief illness. He declined to provide further details.

Horn's career spanned five decades, 50 albums and five Grammy nominations. He performed in concert tours and recording sessions with such artists as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington.

His album "Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts" won Grammys in 1966 for best original jazz composition and photographic cover album.

Horn's albums "Inside the Taj Mahal" and "Inside the Great Pyramid" laid the groundwork for the New Age music genre and earned him the nickname "Father of New Age Music."
