Missing search by instrument feature. Is it going to be implemented or will we be stuck with useless and irrelevant moods and themes searches only?

I know it doesn't apply to groups, but I think it would be useful to have an instrument category for individuals, so someone like Jerry Lee Lewis or Elton John or Billy Joel or Dr. John or Professor Longhair would be categorized as a piano player. These are obvious, but if I'm trying to find e.g. euphonium players, this categorization would be very useful.

Thanks for writing. These are good ideas. I'll pass them on to our development staff!

Apparently, development staff didn't care for the ideas. Search by instrument is still unavailable and it was such a great feature on previous (real) allmusic.com site. Shame.

Hi Piotr,
This is still on our list of things to try to incorporate into advanced search.

Thanks.

Please recover the search by instrument. I was learning so much from this fantastic feature.
Musicians play instruments; so, discovering top artists by instrument really makes sense.
