LOS ANGELES — 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, B.C., af­ter a brief ill­ness. He de­clined to pro­vide fur­ther de­tails. Horn’s ca­reer spanned five decades, 50 al­bums and five Grammy nom­i­na­tions. He per­formed on con­cert tours and in 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.”
