MR VERSATILE…

KEVIN FLOURNOY is a US keyboardist who’s been at the top of his game for nearly 30 year. Kevin has written, performed or recorded with people like Chaka Khan, Babyface, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Jeffrey Osborne, The Pointer Sisters, Jennifer Hudson, Howard Hewitt, Jamie Foxx, The Jazz Crusaders and contemporary jazzers Boney James, Norman Brown, Kirk Whalum and Harvey Mason. In the 2000’s, Flournoy toured with Donny Osmond for six years. And he’s also worked on numerous TV projects  including ‘American Idol’

Right now Kevin’s preparing the release of an album of his own … ‘Vers•a•tility’ from which the single ‘Tell Me If You Still Care’ is winning plenty of plays from US soul tastemakers . It’s a cover of the SOS Band’s 1983 hit  and Kevin and his team create a smooth, sophisticated  quiet storm jam. The icing on the cake is the beautiful vocal interplay between Phil Perry and Shannon Pearson.

This one was actually first relased in 2022 but is now deservedly being re-promoted, hopefully to find a wider audience. And, of course, it’s always good to  have new music from the wonderful Mr P while Shannon is an acclaimed session singer. This one’s recommended!
