Afro-American Steve Flowers has been active as a composer, flutist and music teacher for more than 30 years, both in classical and in jazz. He holds a Master in flute, and has already performed at several festivals in Chicago and Northwest Indiana. He was also on stage with Alex Bugnon, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Koko Taylor, After 7, Take 6, Regina Bell, BB King, Bernie Mack, Vicki Winans and the late Phyllis Hyman. His debut 'Playtime' was well received at the time, and now there is a successor. On it are 9 original contemporary and Latin jazz tracks. Steve plays different flutes, such as piccolo, bass and G flute. The tracks sometimes sound slightly funky like 'Jesse's Place' and 'It Is What It Is', sometimes Latin like 'My Friend' and 'The Flutist', sometimes improvised like 'Oh What a Life', sometimes as a light bossa nova on the title track, and sometimes smooth like 'No Tomorrow'. A must for those who love flutists such as Hubert Laws, Herbie Mann, etc.
