Jeremy Steig was born September 23, 1942 in Manhattan.

At age 19 he was involved in a motorcycle accident which left him paralyzed on one side.

So he created a mouthpiece out of cardboard and tape.

Most jazz flutists are saxophonists who double on the instrument.

However he played only flute.


When he was 21 he recorded his first album, “Flute Fever”.

It was produced by John Hammond and released by Columbia in 1963.
