We had a lot of fun updating this Leon Haywood classic with vocalist Alana Bridgewater and producer Douglas Romanow. Some will know the original from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s heavily sampled “Nuthin’ But a G Thang.”
Tum Hi Ho, which I learned for an Indian wedding in the Toronto area is close to my heart.
And Hazy (Remaster) climbed up into the Top 100 Soul/RnB on the iTunes charts in Norway, as well as #27 on the UK Soul Chart!
UK Arts Council funded music blog Trust the Doc said “”The story behind Canadian flautist Jef Kearns’ foray into the world of Soul and R’n’B is relatively recent. He has gathered quite a reputation in the Jazz world and recorded successful albums in that field before collaborating with Soul artists and now picking up the plaudits from the media for that work too. The latest of these collaborations is with Karen Jewels on the song Hazy. A mid-tempo, semi-funky groove with dreamy synths and harmonies allows Karen to showcase a yearning voice that’s like a subtly sweet syrup. She duly delivers a soulful melody and simple love song lyrics while Jef plays reverberant flute phrases above and around her. It’s sophisticated, smooth, and soothing. As the title suggests, perfect for a summer evening chill-out.”
I am in the studio and working on a new single set to be released in October.
Be sure to check out this amazing popping to Hazy by Korean dancer Dokyun! Pay special attention to the story he tells with emojis.
Really loving the sound of these Doja Cat songs on flute as you can see by this and my last post!
Loving the vibe of this song “You Right” by Doja Cat and The Weeknd. The melody practically sounds like it was made for the flute.
Felt it was time to finally lay this Janet Jackson track down!
Purchase/Stream “Find My Way 2 U” here.
