Jef Kearns – The Flute

The FluteJef Kearns cut his musical teeth as part of the house band for Toronto, Ontario’s jazz club, Trane Studio (named after John Coltrane) for 5 years on their weekly urban music night. Downbeat Magazine named Trane Studio one of the Top 150 Jazz Clubs worldwide. When I hear the flute, I think of meadows, flowers, ponds and trees … That perhaps explains why I still find the use of the flute in R&B and jazz to be so shocking. However, Jef Kearns shows this juxtaposition can be shockingly effective.

His new EP is aptly titled The Flute and now on sale at CDBaby.
