"It's an authentic, fresh sound that brings modern R&B back to its roots."
- Soul in Stereo
"Flautist Jef Kearns steps forward with a very appealing R&B/hip hop/jazz release that packs a lot of intensity and soul-stirring melodies throughout the album.
What you will find most pleasant is how Kearns weaves his flute into the fabric of this very focused album. It floats, it sings, and it pushes the melodies forward with muscle and charm."

"When in 2009 I reviewed ‘On The Level’ from flautist Jef Kearns I described it as dispelling the myth that flute players can’t do urban jazz. In fact it was a hip, up to the minute, collection that oozed class and consequently it is pleasing to report that Jef is back with the equally good ‘Soulfisticated’. In fact it finds Kearns displaying a whole new musical maturity that is evidenced by the sophistication of the production, the selection of guest vocalists and, above all, the quality of the eleven songs that he either writes or co-writes."
