Album Notes
Karen Stachel is carrying on the torch of great jazz flutists. Her flute playing is captivating with spirit filled melodies, dancing rhythms, and embracing harmonies.


Uplifting jazz flute with a cool, soothing sound - combining elements from jazz, folk, rock, r & b, and classical with the wonderful sense of mystery. This CD is a beautiful collection of acoustic flute, mostly solo flute and some songs are duets and trios overdubbed by Karen.

Musical influences:

Hubert Laws, Herbie Mann, Ian Andersen, Paul Horn, Bobbi Humphrey, Paul Renzi, Classical and Jazz Music

"And Of The Son" Press Reviews:

"Karen Stachel has assembled 16 flute instrumental holiday pieces from "Little Drummer Boy" to "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" in her CD,
"And of the Son - A Christmas Album of Jazz Flute".

There are no other instruments on the record - only Karen and her flute - and the performances are hypnotic.... The CD Opens with "The Christmas Song", and the spirit winds around the melody as Karen plays an unaccompanied rendition of the classic Torme penned favorite. The highlight of the CD is in track 4's, "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies". The Nutcracker classic is featured here as Karen has recorded multiple tracks in order to accommodate all of the parts - and the resulting continuity is wonderful. Any time of year, this CD will put you in the musical holiday spirit, for the musicianship and the delightful delivery of the memorable tunes."

The Karen Stachel Jazztet History:

The Karen Stachel Jazztet consist of four members all of whom perform with Bay Area groups including her husband, Norbert Stachel, lead saxophonist with 'Tower of Power'. The Jazztet formed in 1992, is an active jazz group. It performs in a wide range of settings, from music festivals to local jazz clubs. In 2000, the Christmas album "And Of The Son" was released which is being well received and promoted for holiday seasons. With the successful release of the album, look forward to more of this soulful flutist.


Karen Stachel - Flute / Alto Flute / Bass Flute / Piccolo, John Schott - Electric Guitar, Norbert Stachel - Electric Bass, Elliot Kavee - Drums.

San Francisco jazz flutist Karen Stachels' smooth, lyrical playing backed up on most pieces by guitar, bass, and drums creates a rhythmic, mellow music that is perfect for the ambiance of a crowded coffee house or jazz club. The Karen Stachel Jazztet is highly recommended for an evening of beautiful jazz mixed with a innovative pieces. -East Bay Express
