Althea René – Live In Detroit

11157362_10206390852351036_372665359661949376_oAlthea René is the first performer in history to have their flute featured single reach the number one ranking on the Billboard Music Chart. The daughter of one of Motown’s original Funk Brothers, she began playing the flute at the tender age of four. She worked for 11 years as a Deputy Sheriff in Wayne County, Michigan (Detroit) before making the leap into a full-time music career.

Arguably the strongest performance ever displayed by a soul-jazz flutist in recent history. Her Detroit-based band delivered the unparalleled funk that made this concert a scorching hot tour de force. Get this remarkable album at CDBaby.
