We study the effects of low- p T collective flow on radiative energy loss from high- p T partons traversing the QCD medium created in high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions. We illustrate this idea through three examples. Due to longitudinal flow, jet profiles at the LHC present marked asymmetries in the -plane, and widths in and of particle distributions associated with a high- p T trigger at RHIC become different. Finally, transverse flow implies an increase of high- p T v 2 at RHIC.
