A Very Still Life is the first and only album by Jack Kevorkian, released on the Lucid Subjazz label, in which he plays the flute. It was released on May 27, 1997. The 5000-unit limited release was reviewed in Entertainment Weekly online as "weird" but "good natured". The CD initially suffered from slow sales. As of 1997, 1400 units had been sold. However, after Kevorkian's death in 2011, the CD became considered a collectors item and rocketed in value, fetching around $400 on Amazon.com.  Kevorkian wrote all the songs but one; the album was reviewed in jazzreview.com as "very much grooviness" except for one tune, with "stuff in between that's worthy of multiple spins.
