Carlos Nakia, and Douglas Spotted Eagle. "I am often asked what kind of music I play. To which I respond, I don't know. It's music that I like. I've been told there are two kinds of music, good and bad, I try to make the former." Jeff was honored with a Native American Music Awards nomination for best flutist of the year in 1998, and his album Cedar Moon won it's catagory in 2001.
