Sean Grace

Sean Grace's playing has been described as "eloquent, supple and evocative ... sometimes gentle, at all times sophisticated, and always exuberant". His warm, sensuous tone and breathless technique redefine the flute in contemporary jazz and instrumental pop.

By the age of 7, he was already accomplished on both the Irish tin whistle and baroque recorder and was composing songs on piano and organ. He got his first flute at age 8, performed at Carnegie Hall at 11 and entered the Juilliard School pre-college program on scholarship at 12

MUSICIAN Born:

Kofi Burbridge

Seventeen years ago, Kofi Burbridge moved to Atlanta to record an album. He's still waiting to finish it, but he hasn't exactly been sitting around. Kofi is that rarest of musicians - the combination virtuoso keyboard player/flautist. If he hasn't always known where he was headed, the path is his own, and he has traveled it his way. The journey started in the Bronx, NY, where Kofi was born on September 22, 1961 to William and Carol Burbridge. They moved to Washington, DC two years later, and Oteil Burbridge was born there in 1964. Sisters Leilani and Adero followed in 1968 and 1971. The boys made their musical talents obvious from an early age - Kofi's perfect pitch was discovered when he was six, and he began taking flute lessons
