Saxophone & Vocals

The talented saxophonist, pianist, singer and songwriter, Jessy J, who has worked with everyone from The Temptations to Michael Bublé, started her musical career at age four. At 15, she was named Piano State Champion and switched later to the saxophone.

In 2004, she joined the Off-Broadway musical “Blast!” and toured in the US, the UK and Japan. In 2007 Jessy issued a self-titled album, before she finally burst onto the contemporary jazz scene in 2008, blending her love for Latin rhythms and jazz on her chart-topping, award-winning album “Tequila Moon”. She earned the Radio & Records’ “Debut Artist of The Year” Award and Contemporary Jazz “Song of the Year” by both R&R and Billboard for the title track, which held the #1 spot on the chart for eight weeks. Followed up by “True Love” (2009) containing the #1 single “Tropical Rain” and the record “Hot Sauce” (2011), that debuted #1 at the Billboard Jazz Album Chart.

With her latest release, “Second Chances” (2013), Jessy takes over the reigns as the producer of the new album. The set features collaborations with Grammy nominated keyboardist-producer Jeff Lorber, Grammy winning guitarist Norman Brown, renowned bassist Jimmy Haslip and legendary pianist Joe Sample.
