Summer Time~!



Hey there,


Hope you all are gearing up for a fantastic summer season! Summer officially starts on June 20th this year and we are kicking off Summer with a Father’s Day Concert in San Diego, CA, featuring keyboardist Tracy Carter and my incredible band along with Tony Exum Jr. and Singing Diva Shannon (from George Duke’s band). What can I say, its going to be an awesome day of music you won’t want to miss.

Jazz at the Creek
Saturday, June 17, 5pm
310 Euclid Ave.
San Diego, CA 92114
TICKETS HERE

The best part about the shows is getting a chance to say hello in person, signing CD/s photos and catching up with all of you :) Thanks for allowing us to do what we love, make music!

Here’s a little taste of what you’ll see at my upcoming shows.  This is a live in Las Vegas clip.  Watch here.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this summer on tour in San Diego, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, Winterpark, San Antonio and more!

Happy 2017





Happy 2017 everyone!

Hope your new year is off to a tremendous start. One of the highlights from last year was working with students in Alabama:




Overall 2016 was amazing and I'm positive 2017 will be even better. I've already enjoyed some shows in San Diego and Palm Springs this year :)

Later this Spring I'll be performing a benefit concert for Hands for Hope, a non profit organization that helps at risk youth with after school programs!

And I just started working on new music after an inspiring trip to New Orleans.



Hope you and your loved ones are blessed!

Best,



Jessy

Hi guys, I am so thankful for a great summer, although it went by too fast...
Southern California tends to have an endless summer vibe.

Thats why I chose to call my new album “California Christmas”, its hot in LA all year long!
The album is officially out on October 28th, and for the next 2 weeks you can download it for the
low price of $8.99 (iTunes and Amazon).





The pledge music campaign has been off to a wonderful start, be sure to check
out all the unique gifts that we are offering for Christmas :)

 



I'm excited to be performing with my friends this weekend in San Diego~



 



Next weekend I’ll be in Birmingham, Alabama at Jazz at the Park and I will also
have an opportunity to work with Jazz students in the area while I’m there.
You can follow along on all the fun through social media.

Here’s what people are saying about the new album!

"Charming and timeless enough to take it's eventual place as a holiday classic,
you'll certainly enjoy this around the holiday fireplace. Well done throughout.!” -Midwest Record

"The First Noel" has been done literally hundreds of times, but I have to say that this is right at
the top of the best versions I have heard. -Jazz World

Hope you have a blessed weekend,

love,
Jessy

In Other News


I have also been enjoying rigorous training for swim competitions. I think it's important for people to pursue sports because it challenges their comfort zone. I enjoy working towards a goal to become faster and stronger both mentally and physically. The same dedication can be used to benefit other practices in life, like music, relationships, and family.

I'm thankful for all of you and the journey that we've taken so far~ five CDs in seven years, I can't believe it!!

Hope you have a fabulous rest of the summer.
Love,

Jessy J

My One and Only One ~ Today!!!

Jessy



Hey, guys! 


My new album comes out today!!!  In honor of my new release I’ve decided to create a video series, “Behind the Scenes” explaining more in depth about the songs I recorded and why they are important to me. My travels to Africa and Cuba definitely influenced this album as well as my journies in life & love, Hope you enjoy it!

Album coverBehind the Scenes: Romance

“It’s a wonderful feeling when you meet someone that will be with you forever. I wanted to capture the essence of that in an original love song.” In this episode I talk about the Romantic songs on this album, including the title #MyOneAndOnlyOne



Behind the Scenes: Cuba

“My trip to Cuba last December influenced 3 songs on this album “Cuba, Paraiso Magico, and Siempre”. In this episode I discuss how my trip to Havana, Cuba inspired three songs on this album.



Behind the Scenes: Covers

“Lovesong was made famous by The Cure in the 80’s and covered later by Adele. One of the reasons this lovesong stands out to me is because it has a melancholy melody, in a way it is a sad lovesong.” In this last episode I discuss why I recorded three covers on my album.

Give Thanks this Holiday Season

What are you thankful for?

This year I am most thankful for the gift of love.

Love has no fear, 5 years ago my Father was diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer. This year the fabulous doctors at Cedars Sinai removed the cancer 100% and he is totally cancer FREE!

Life is a gift, we are thankful.



Also thankful for the gift of music and the joy that it brings.

It has been a pleasure sharing music with you over the past 6 years. I'm back in the studio with one of my favorite producers, Mr. Paul Brown.



We are completing my 5th studio project, to be released early 2015!

There's about to be a bunch a frequent flyer miles coming up!

We're headed to Louisiana, Hawaii, London, Miami, & Cuba. I am so excited and I can not wait!

Hope to see you soon!

Continued Blessings,



Jessy

Hello Everyone!

What's up? I'm so happy to announce that I started working on my 5th studio project last week! Time flies when you're having fun and we've been having a great time because the past 6 years feel like such a short period of time.


RIP Joe Sample

Joe Sample
As some of you already know, we lost a piano legend last month. Joe Sample and I worked together for the first time in 2008 and stayed in close contact since then. In 2010 we wrote and recorded the songs "Rainbow Gold" and "Last Night" together for my album "Hot Sauce". I learned so many things from Joe in the studio related to music & Life. The one element that stands out to me the most is how Joe didn't treat me differently as a lady musician. He expected the same things from me as the other musicians and was very respectful. He was a class act. We're going to miss you Joe !!


Upcoming Shows


This month we have a SoCal show coming up and a concert in Ohio & Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

As always feel free to follow along with us on tour via social media:

Yay, September is finally here!

Spring has sprung and summer has sung...

I always enjoy the changing of the seasons and the renewed spirit that comes with them :)



LAST MONTH


VMAsI had some downtime after finishing our summer tour and decided to take a break from music and explore Montreal. It was inspiring to visit the Fabulous Faberge exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art. And equally fascinating to learn how his precise style helped influence the entire Russian Empire!

On another note, we had a blast performing with Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Becoming a Fan

It's funny that as musicians sometimes we can take music for granted. Last month, I had a chance to become a fan of music again at the Berks Jazz Fest in Reading, Pennsylvania. I checked out a bunch of different shows and saw a lot of my friends perform! I even fell in love with the music of Gregory Porter, he's an amazing Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter. The way he plays music reminded me why I play music, to touch people, connect with them and bless them. I feel thoroughly blessed to be on the cover of "The Jazz in the M.E.E." Magazine this month :)

Woodwind & Brasswind

Jessy J



We just got back from our Spring Break trip to Mexico! I love Mexico because it represents serenity,Family peace, and relaxation for me. My dad was born there so every time we go back we're greeted with open arms by our family. And we really have such a good time whether we go dancing, hang at the beach, go for swim, shop or whatever it is we're doing.  We have so much fun because we're all together!


I'm also very excited to be featured on the cover of Woodwind & Brasswind  Magazine this spring! I used to order reeds and accessories from this magazine when I was a little girl, so it's like coming around full circle ~  please check it out here...

Thankful


Second ChancesTo me Thanksgiving is all about hanging out & having fun with family and friends.
This year I am so thankful for all of you! Thank you for being so loyal to the music that you love- thank you for dancing along with us and enjoying the ride. This year I'm thankful for my 4th studio album release Second Chances.

DadI'm especially thankful for my fathers ongoing battle and victory over cancer. I know that cancer effects so many of us, through our experience with this disease the most powerful medicine is to remain thankful.

And that is exactly what we will do this Thanksgiving give thanks for our health, life, family, music, loves, and joys.


Thank you for sharing with us too!

Working my Bootie Off

Whats up beautiful people? Como estan?


I've been working my bootie off on this new Album, Second Chances... and its been worth it! We debuted at an impressive #2 on Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts.

Jessy J



And our single, "Listen 2 the Groove," is playing on EVERY Radio station in the country, so we're off to a good start!

After a series of CD Release parties and many interviews, I went into my usual hibernation mode~ this is where I rest & relax! I love to hibernate! LOL

Coming up we have some shows in Riverside, California with the amazing Sheila E, and also in Phoenix for the Arizona Jazz Festival.

Can't wait to see you all very soon!

The Studio

Jessy J


American Idol
When I was a little girl I dreamt of becoming a studio musician, recording music for Movies, Television, and Albums. Fortunately, these past few months have been studio time for me! I've been in the studio often working as a producer on my new album, recording for popular television shows like "The Voice," Latin Television late-night show "Noches Con Platanito," and even with the most recent winner, Candice Glover, on "American Idol!"

I feel so blessed to be a studio rat and have completely been enjoying the experiences we've been having!


My New Album

We are also getting closer to the release of my brand new CD, "Second Chances." One of my favorite songs from the album is our funky rendition of Sergio Mendes classic ~ "Magdalenha." I worked on the track with fabulous musicians Jeff Lorber & Jimmy Haslip. This song is special to me because it reflects the party and fun-loving attitude of brazilian music, which I've had strong affinity for since I was a child. Every time I hear this tune I just want to get up and dance!

Hope to see you all very soon on the road or online :)

Second Chances!

Jessy J



Do any of you have regrets? Wish you could re-do something? For all those opportunities we missed out on, we can all have a second chance.
Norman Brown
That's the title of my brand new CD... Second Chances!

Second Chances will be released this summer and is all about getting up when you fall down and pushing through to the finish line.

I was so blessed to work with GRAMMY award winning guitarist, Norman Brown, on this song. We first worked together in 2010 Summer Storm Tour and I have been a huge of fan of his ever since!



A new friend that I've had the pleasure to work with is Johnny Britt (keys/vocals/tpt), this guy really brings it. We co-wrote Second Chances together & recently performed in the "American Idol" horn section.



Lets go get some Second Chances!

Love,

Jessy J

NEW CD

Jessy J


Hi everybody,

Happy early spring!

What have y'all been up to? I've been having a marvelous time working on my new project and I wanted to share this exclusive behind the scenes info with you! 


Back at it again


Jessy JIn 2008 I had the opportunity to work with Guitars and Saxes including this especially talented man- Jeff Lorber.

After our initial meeting I knew I wanted to work with him in the studio, it was just a matter of time. And the time is so right , right now- we've been comin up with some funky- fresh grooves at his home studio in the Pacific Palisades.






Tango


ArgentinaI'm excited to give you a glimpse into the music writing process. I have loved the tango ever since my first trip to Argentina in 2009. I was performing with Michael Bolton and we had about 3 days in the city. It is one of my favorite places in the world, the food is amazing, the wine is delicious and the shopping is incredible!!! While we were visiting Buenos Aires we went to a Carlos Gardel Tango Show that inspired a song on my new album :)



There it is , just the beginning of more to come...

Stay tuned for the release of my album later this year!!!

More special guests to be announced soon

The Leaves

Jessy J



In the mornings I enjoy walking my pouch, Ms. Mini, around the block. The other day I couldn’t help noticing the leaves on the ground. They looked so beautiful... orange, yellow, and amber. If the leaves didn’t fall to the ground, there wouldn’t be room for the new leaves in the Spring time! And it reminded me that God makes all things new.


Aerosmith Recording


Last May I was happily surprised by a call from Aerosmith to join them at the studio. I was honored to play Tenor Saxophone on this cut from their new album “Music From Another Dimension,” “Oh Yeah.” The coolest part was hanging out in the studio with them... Joe & Steven rode their motorbikes to the studio!! #unforgettable

Happy Harvest

Jessy J


Hiya,

Happy Harvest Everyone! This time of year is always so pretty, the changing of the leaves, the weather cooling down and the night becoming darker sooner... Brings back so many memories of Hot Cocoas, fireplaces, chocolate chip cookies and fun times with family and friends.

I had an amazing time with my family this past month! We went shopping (of course) to the movies, ate popcorn, danced, and just plain hungout!


Sowing Seeds


Looking back, throughout the years, I can see a direct correlation between sowing seeds and a time of harvest. Without the uncomfortable “growing pains” of life, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the sweetest of joys. I would like to thank God for the season of sowing seeds, because as you know, at times we don’t feel like doing anything! But the seeds that we sow are always at work, growing and maturing, all we have to do is keep an eye on them and tend to them when they need some love.

Today I am thankful for the seeds that have been sown over the course of my life... from piano lessons as a young girl all the way through music collage and beyond~ I am thankful for the gift of music. It is soothing to my soul and refreshing to my ears. It helps me live everyday~ with purpose and meaning. I love music!


Upcoming Shows!


We are going to JAPAN!!!!

Then to LONDON... and in between doing a B-day/Holiday show at Spaggs!!

See you there!


Besos,

New Perspective

Jessy J



Hi gang,

Its time for a new perspective~ sometimes when we look too closely at things, we can have a distorted view of our true identity.

FriendsThat's why as an artist I find it so important to have moments of rest and relaxation. Recently I was so happy to visit friends in Miami for some much needed recoup time. We went to the beach, shopped, went out to eat and had so much fun!

While I was visiting and reflecting one thing came to mind: we have the option of changing how we see things. One day we went to the beach and the sun was covered temporarily by the clouds and I could have just packed up my things and called it a day, but I knew that it would only last for a moment. Ultimately the day would have lots of sunshine~ and thats exactly what happened. After a short rain, and a few clouds, it was sunny the rest of the day!

Sometimes things dont always go the way we planned, but I'd like to encourage those of you that have had some clouds, just remember the sunshine is hiding behind the clouds :)

Coming up we have a Spooky Halloween Contest & the Arizona Jazz Fest!

Hope to see you all soon xxo

With sincere love and graditude,

Jessy J

Olympic Confidence

Jessy J


OlympicsI have been so inspired and fascinated by watching the 2012 Olympic Games this Summer! The athletes are incredible and I’ve noticed that they all have a few things in common: talent, patience, endurance, faith, and confidence. And I can’t help but draw a direct parallel between athletes and professional musicians... so much of what we do is similar. We dedicate most of our time and energy to achieving our personal best.


OlympicsI’ve also noticed that the commentators have been speaking about how “confidence” can make or break a race. Sometimes, the things that appear to be the easiest to attain are actually the most difficult. One would think that since these athletes are the best in the world, that confidence would come naturally. The truth is, without their families, friends, and fans they wouldn’t be able to do what they do! And the same is true for us musicians... without your support, we wouldn’t be able to chase our dreams and make them come true!

Thank you all for your support that leads to confidence and success!


Continued blessings,

Jessy J

Continuous Play!

Jessy J



If you were an iPod, what would you be like? Would you be on shuffle, a slow song, up-beat pop tune, repeat or continuous play? Sometimes I feel like I'm in the continuous play cycle... this summer has been a busy, busy summer of the most awesome opportunities to perform with "Sax and the City" all across the US. Not only are they fabulously talented musicians, but they are also incredible people.
 



Upcoming Concerts


In addition to the "Sax and the City" shows, we've been blessed with several shows with my band that have been a great growing experience. Last week we played in Wichita, Kansas for the first time! And we also got to debut brand-new music. I look forward to all the events coming up & sharing them together with you :) This week we have a concert at the UCLA Farmers Classic Tennis Tournament and also an East Coast tour to Syracuse, New York and Milford, Connecticut.

Hope to see you guys real soon... peace!

As you many of you know I graduated from USC, and was raised in Hemet, California. This concert will showcase the talents of Richie Gajate on Percussion (Diana Ross, John Denver, Phil Collins), Roberto Vally (Diane Shure, Boney James) on Bass, and Michael Angel (Sheila E, Prince) on Guitar~ you won’t want to miss our Cinco de Mayo celebration!

Also, this month our new single featuring legendary pianist Joe Sample, “Rainbow Gold” will be out on the airwaves! In 1978 Joe Sample wrote a song called “Rainbow Seeker” about finding GREATNESS in life and in 2011 we wrote a song together called “Rainbow Gold”. Rainbow Gold is about finding the end of the rainbow and enjoying the GOLD. What is your Gold? It could be family, fun times, great memories, or the future...

I’m so thankful for the blessing of your companionship towards our Rainbow Gold.

Hi everybody,

Que pasa? We've been having a great March - got some time to listen to wonderful NEW music, like Paul Browns CD "Funky Joint" as well as Robert Glasper's "Black Radio", Fred Hammonds "love, life, Romance" and most recently Esperanza Spauldings latest release "Radio". It's so inspiring to hear what other people are doing and saying through powerful music. I love how a good song can change your entire attitude :-)


Other than listening to great music I have also been working on new arrangements, practicing and developing relationships with people in the business (we know this as networking).



Wave's 25th Anniversary Party
(Me, Teresa, Pat Prescott)


Paul Brown's CD Release party
(Euge, me, Najee, Michael, Pb)


Hanging out with Michael Lington


Visiting the Rico Reeds Factory
(I was really honored that they asked me to help them with product development)


Coming up is our all new- all fabulous Sax in the City Tour featuring Marion Meadows, Paul Taylor and myself. Please check out our tour schedule and come vibe with us!

Un beso grande,

PEOPLE ESPANOL!!! ****

Jessy J



Hi guys,

EarthPeople always ask me what its like to be a touring musician and if I ever get tired...and the answer is YES!! Especially after a crazy tour schedule like the one last month- London, San Diego, Los Angeles, Germany, Orlando, Miami, Los Angeles!

So the best way for me to recharge my batteries is to get plugged back into that "home feeling" like visiting with my sister in Oregon, and that's exactly what I did! After the busy-ness, I rested for a few days and had a wonderful visit with my sis, her twins and hubby. We got a chance to watch movies (The Help), Boardwalk Empire (HBO) catch a game of my niece and nephew (elementary football + cheerleading), visit their school, and of course go....SHOPPING!!!

Now I feel completely recharged re-focused and ready to go in for round 2 of Hot Sauce!


Cooking Contest!

We are excited to announce a very special cooking contest featuring Tapatio

Hola Amigos,

I'm so excited to be performing with a Mariachi group for the very first time this week!
 


Mariachi Los Tigres is a talented group from Stephen F Austin Jr High School in San Antonio, TX that has performed all over the USA. I was pleasantly surprised when I visited their school last March and heard them play a special version of "Tequila Moon!"
 
It's going to be a unique and heart warming event don't miss it:

This year has been an awesome year for me in the Season of giving back. I started teaching private lessons in middle school and continued all the way through my undergrad and after. When my touring career really took off I had to stop teaching because I was gone so often. Now with the help of Selmer and Disney I've been able to reconnect with music in the schools and give back to the next generation of music super stars!
 
 
Check out the slideshow from my recent Selmer Jazz clinics:
 

 
I'm also proud to serve on the Board of Directors for the Young Musicians Project in Los Angeles. This charitable organization helps bring music back into the schools that have been affected by major state budget cuts. This Friday we are celebrating our one year anniversary! Come celebrate with us at the South Pasadena Music Center. Map and directions.

Be blessed and be a blessing,

This is the first time Eric and I have ever performed together and it’s sure to be memorable! When I first got started in the Contemporary Jazz Scene, Eric was so kind and generous with his knowledge about the biz, so it means even more to be jamming with my friend and colleague!

Awareness in 2011

Jessy J


Hello friends,
The New Year always brings a time of reflection, as I reflect on the past and focus on the bright future…

GlobeIn 2011, I pray to realize more than self. For when we are giving we are living. I pray to be a blessing to the people in and around my life.

This Year also marks a year of personal goals being met in International Touring. I have performed throughout the world with other artists but this year I have the opportunity to perform my music with my band around the Globe!!! I feel so happy and thankful to be performing in Dubai, Venice, Croatia, Japan, London and Germany this Year alone!



Article in "Gulf News"
Divider


In a recent interview for the “Gulf News” in Dubai of the United Arab Emirates, I was asked why people should watch me perform in Dubai:

“I speak from heart with my voice & my sax of love for all people. We are one or should be one in unison. We should all be accepted.”

My sincere prayers go out to the ones lost in the senseless shooting in Arizona. I pray for peace for all people and an awareness that transcends race, gender, political beliefs, and Nationality. I desire for us to serve each other with Love & Justice.

Luv,


Jessy J

This summer has been a great time to reconnect with friends and family including my mentor and producer, Paul Brown. Lately we’ve been in the creative stages, writing and recording music.

We’re about half way through my third album!! I can’t believe how fast time flies.  I can still remember when I was waiting for "Tequila Moon" to be released, a little over 2 years ago!

I know you guys are gonna luv the new album! It has a kinda funky Brazilian jazz vibe to it with some Paul Brown guitars, sizzilin' sax and fun vocals too!

I just got back from Mazatlan, Mexico with my family and it was such a blast  I stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay and LOVED it!! You can read all about it here on my blog! 

Lastly I wanted to share with you the joyful part about being an artist…recently I was touched by this kind note:

“Hey Jessy,
Just wanted to Thank You!! Two Years Ago, you played the Jazz Fest in San Antonio, TX. My daughter met you backstage and you told her she was beautiful and she has never forgotten it. 2 weeks after she saw you, she ended up in the hospital and almost lost her life due to an infection in her heart. I can tell you that as she laid in PICU , she said, "Dad, we're gonna miss the JazzFest".....it broke my heart, but Thank God She's completely healed now....she starts school in August has has elected to learn how to play SAX!!!!!!! I think you had a little to do with that and I am GRATEFUL to you. May God continue to Bless you as you inspire other young girls around the world to pursue their dreams.“

Wishing you all the BEST!

Luv,
Jessy J

"She’s Latina, and plays the sax and sings and dances, and has that particular passion and rhythm.’ It’s very rewarding to be the kind of artist that reflects what I really am: I am a Latina, and I’m very proud of my parents and where they came from and how hard they worked to provide opportunities for my sister and me.”

GRAMMY’S

Hey that’s right the Grammy’s are just around the corner, and its time to VOTE!
If you are a voting member of the Grammies please consider my new ALBUM “TRUE LOVE” for BEST POP Instrumental Album.

Field 1
Category 10

VOTE 037


Something interesting- as I was scrolling through the entry list I noticed only 4 female names entered in the instrumental category out of a whopping 82 entries!

I think its time for a change! Please be apart of making history, lets encourage more people to vote ☺

Most recently at a DOVE commercial interview when asked what I believe REAL BEAUTY is, my answer was “confidence in embracing our diversity”. And as a young female Latin JAZZ musician I am embracing the future with LOVE and HOPE.

Please click below to sample the music:

Hi friends and Fam!
I am so honored to be on the COVER of Saxophone journal Magazine coming out this OCTOBER!!

"And what do the critics think of jessy's abilities?  David Gibson, Editor of Saxophone Journal, who is notoriously stingy when it comes to certifying saxophonists as talented, recently wrote, “Jessy J is truly a gifted and talented artist.  You’ll notice I didn’t say musician. Musicians are more numerous than artists… Artists are human beings who demonstrate exceptional gifts and skills at what they do… Jessy does it all.”  It’s just not possible to earn any higher accolade. "

~Radio & Records
 
 
Jessy J breezes to No. 1 on her first try…
 
~Radio & Records
 
"Tequila Moon"…(her pop and Latin-influenced debut set) has resided in the top 20 of Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart since its March release.”
 
~Radio & Records
 
Nominated for a 2008 International Jazz Award
*Best New Artist
 
 
NO. 1 song of the Year (Smooth Jazz)
~Billboard
 
 
Hot Artist
~Billboard
 
Debut Artist of the Year
~Jazztrax Radio
 
"Aside from bringing her luminous smile, sultry tenor- and soprano-sax playing, and sensual singing to the mix, Jessy is single-handedly expanding the demographic boundaries of smooth jazz in two directions."

~Jazziz
 
 
"The sexiest sax player... ever."
~Boward Times
 
 
 
"Wow! What a discovery!... smoky, intense, throaty, complex, and sexy. On top of the blowing, this girl can sing as well! This just might be the best all around contemporary jazz release of the year."
~contemporary jazz.com
 
“increasing the boundaries of jazz both musically and demographically”
~Jazziz
 
 
“revolutionizing jazz” as a young Latina
~ People Espanol
 
To say that singer, composer and saxophonist Jessy J is a gifted artist, almost seems like an insignificant statement, in light of her exquisite debut album "Tequila Moon." She woos you in Spanish as she coos the words... and she seduces you subtly with soft and tender chords from her tenor sax..."~Jazz Police
 
“Jessy J is able to serve up evocative phrases that transcend the jazz and pop genres”
 
~Jazz Police
 
“From the opening track "Tequila Moon," until the last notes …Jessy J´s music will charm you and hold you as a willing captive under its enchanting spell. “

~Sounds of Timeless Jazz
 
"The Jessy J sound is what will end up getting you. She soulfully caresses a supremely beautiful tone and feeling out of her instrument, whether it´s her tenor, soprano, flute or voice"
 
~Smoothjazz.com
 

"...shows off an individual voice and a gift for melodic improvisation..."
 
~All Music Guide
 
"This CD has a hot, exotic, latin feel to it & also provides us an in depth look into the talents of Ms. J!"
 
~Urban Music Scene
 
 
 
"As I listen to TEQUILA MOON, I wonder if this is how I´d have felt on a first listen to, say, Boney James, or Dave Koz, or Grover Washington, Jr., and I´m thinking, "yes" because she´s that good! This is one of those cases where you just know… from the music and delivery to her personal drive and dedication to excellence… there is absolutely no stopping this empowered performer. Join us in watching her Smooth Jazz star rise to the absolute top! "
-Smooth Jazz.com
 
"Multi-talented...break through...dazzilng...special! "
-Urban Music Scene
 
 
"Excellent...strong...pleasant...gifted"
-Billboard Music

People Always ask me...

..."why do I play music?"

The answer is easy for me... I have discovered what I was meant to do.. I LOVE to play music... I mean LOVE!!! When I have time, I enjoy practicing, and I get a thrill from recording music, have fun singing it, and run high on the vapors of performance long after it is over...

My day at the Grammy’s


Hello Everyone,
 
The Grammy’s were such an Amazing experience!!! I was able to hang out with some of my favorite artist and hear music from the most talented performers of today.
 
Here’s the shake down on the event activities:
 
I flew in early Sunday morning from Las Vegas (after two shows with Michael Bolton at the House of Blues)…. ran home and got ready super quick.
 
Then I proceeded to the Pre-Telecast (the events that you don’t see on TV, most of the Jazz Awards are recognized at this time), I had a fun time sitting with Steve Chapman and Ron Moss. And even had time to wish Gerald Albright and Earl Klugh good luck before their category nominations were presented (Best Pop Instrumental Album).
 
After all these actives were finished we took a stroll over to the red carpet. And this is where all the fun began! We were just chillin and everyone walked right by… Coldplay, LL Cool J, Jay Z, Jonas Brothers, Neil Diamond. I mean my head was kinda spinning!!! We watched the Ceremony then headed over the to the Grammy After Party-that was a blast! Loved every moment. I got a chance to chat it up with Bret from “Flight of the Conchords” – one of my favorite HBO shows, and even said hello to Neil Portnow, the Grammy President. All in all it was a fantastic experience and I already can’t wait for the Grammy’s next year! It’s definitely the best party/musical event I have ever been to in my whole life!!
 
I placed some of my pics on my blog:
 
http://www.jessyj.com/news/blog.php
 
Here’s a glimpses at some of my upcoming shows…hope to see you all very soon!
 
p.s. wanna hear my new single “Sin Ti/Without You” on the radio? Then please call in to request it today!

Peace & Blessings,
Jessy

Oh Yeah!

Hello Everyone!

Happy 2009~
It’s a wonderful way to get a fresh start on a New Season :)

I had a happy time visiting with friends and family over the Holidays and created a fun Video blog (Vlog) of interviews and special stories and treats:

http://www.jessyj.com/news/blog.php

Topics include:

My sister on shopping, dancing, and MC Hammer

My mom on traveling, recitals, etc…

My Dad’s interview on Music & Latin Culture

My BFF’s on growing up together…

This year, topping off my resolution list-
I hope to remember to take time to smell the roses & dance like nobody’s watching, LOL!

Recently, I have been in the studio working on my second CD, it has been so much fun to be back at the creative stages, writing, performing, arranging, and being in the moment. I am very excited and honored to be working with Paul Brown on this project…he’s an AMAZING producer!

Also, I just finished up an interview for the Jazztrax Radio-on-demand show about being the Debut Artist of the Year (2008). It was so nice to catch up with OUR dear friend and strong supporter of music, Art Good. This interview will be aired next week:

http://www.jazztrax.com/

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful New Year and I’m looking forward to seeing you all very soon…

All my best today & always…
LOVE,

Jessy

(Beverly Hills, CA -- December 15, 2008) Top industry publications
Billboard Magazine and Radio and Records both agree -- Peak Records is #1 and has been named #1 Smooth Jazz Imprint Label of 2008. Also topping their lists was the label's hot new recording artist, saxophonist Jessy J, whose title track from her debut CD, Tequila Moon, was named #1 Smooth Jazz Song of the Year.

Peak Records also recently received two GRAMMY nominations--one for saxophonist Gerald Albright in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album for SAX FOR STAX and Wayne Brady for Best Traditional R&B Vocal for the track, "A Change is Gonna Come," from his debut Peak Records CD - A LONG TIME COMING.

Look for releases in 2009 by The Rippingtons, the collaboration of Marc Antoine and Paul Brown, All 4 One, Peter White, Will Downing, Paul Taylor, Jessy J and Norman Brown.

Peak Records is a division of the Concord Music Group.

Great Things on the Horizon!

There are great things to expect this season! Lots of happiness, shared times with families, reconnecting with old friends, and the joy of music to be made!

This Week my second single “Sin Ti/ Without You” was shipped across the country to all radio stations…it’s time to follow up “Tequila Moon” with a romantic & passionate Bossa Nova (“Sin Ti” in Spanish means “Without You”). Please call or log in online to your local radio station to request this new piece…you won’t be disappointed. It features some of L.A.’s biggest names in music, like Oscar Seaton, Paul Brown, Ricky Peterson, and Roberto Vally!!

I am so delighted to be working with Nichelle Young, my new Fan Club President. We met at the Guitars and Saxes show in Austin, Texas and immediately found that we share a similar passion for life and music. She is a hard working mother of three and a lover of Smooth Jazz. On behalf of Nichelle and myself, we would like to welcome you to join the Official Fan Club!! Nichelle has set up a website for fans to get together and do special events, meet and greets, and other fun activities…Please feel free to contact Nichelle directly if you would like more information:

As promised, I have also uploaded some more video footage from the beautiful Santa Catalina Island Jazztrax Festival behind the Scenes and live show performance clips…

"...the best all around contemporary jazz release of the year"
Contemporary Jazz. com
by John Luciano
April 2008
Tequila Moon
Jessy J


Wow! What a discovery! I was at the Berks Jazz Festival last week. Unfortunately, I was only able to spend two of the festival's ten days taking in music. Simultaneously I realized that Peak has released the debut of 26-year-old saxophonist Jessy J, who also was to appear at Berks as part of the Guitars & Saxes show. What a debut, from the opening throaty chords of "Tequila Moon," I knew I was going to like this woman. I'm not sure the last time I've gotten this excited over a debut by a young sax player. Jessy J, under the ever-watchful eye of Paul Brown, exhibits maturity on her instrument beyond her age. I can't help but make the comparison to Grover Washington, Jr. - and that's a good thing! The album Tequila Moon has a definite Latin lean to it, but in a very sophisticated, intense, contemporary jazz way. This album just feels different - unlike anything that's been released the last few years - smoky, intense, throaty, complex, and sexy. On top of the blowing, this girl can sing as well! This just might be the best all around contemporary jazz release of the year so far.

"To say that singer, composer and saxophonist Jessy J is a gifted artist almost seems like an insignificant statement..."
The Jazz Police
by Joe Montague
Tuesday, 22 April 2008
Jessy J
Tequila Moon


To say that singer, composer and saxophonist Jessy J is a gifted artist almost seems like an insignificant statement, in light of her exquisite debut album, Tequila Moon (Peak Records). She woos you in Spanish as she coos the words to Consuelo Velazquez’s “Besame Mucho” (with an arrangement by Paul Brown and Jessy J), and she seduces you subtly with soft and tender chords from her tenor sax, as she plays the title track, “Tequila Moon.” On this CD, Jessy J also demonstrates her versatility as an artist by playing the flute (“Fiesta Velada”) and the soprano saxophone (“Poetry Man,” and “Running Away”).

While Tequila Moon, released on March 4th, possesses a decidedly Spanish flavor, this is not an album featuring rapid-fire percussion beats, nor does it have heavy melody lines. It is instead a lighter fusion between Latin rhythms and melodic pop elements, but all the while retaining a jazz harmonic structure.

Producer Paul Brown and the management of Peak Records surrounded Jessy J with seasoned and talented musicians, such as bassist Roberto Vally (formerly of Spyro Gyra), keyboardist Gregg Karukas, and two-time Grammy winner Brown, who in addition to acting as producer plays guitar on six of the tracks. Brown enjoyed hit songs while recording with Norman Brown (“Up And At ‘Em”), Euge Groove (“Get ‘Em Goin’”) and Peter White (“What Does It Take [To Win Your Love]”).

“Besame Mucho,” written by Velasquez in 1940 while still in her mid-teens, has been covered by scores of legendary singers over the years, including José Carreras, Jaõ Gilberto, Carmen McRae, Edith Piaf and Nat King Cole. In recent years, the song has been covered by Diane Schuur, Diana Krall and Michael Buble. I am told that the words “Besame Mucho” can be translated as, “kiss me a lot,” or “kiss me much,” and with the lilt of Jessy J’s voice mirroring her physical beauty, it would not be surprising if one were to discover that numerous men at her concerts are singing the words to “Besame Mucho” back to her. Perhaps one of the prettiest love songs ever written, “Besame Mucho” is further enhanced by Jessy J’s eloquent phrasing, Vally’s tender bassline, and Brown’s elegant guitar chording.

Listening to the twenty-six year old Jessy J weave magic with her soprano saxophone as she plays the lyrical “Running Away,” which she co-wrote with Brown, and then opting for a tenor-voiced horn on Leon Russell’s “Song For You,” one must ask the question: If she is already this good, how great can she become? Like Mindi Abair, Jessy J is able to serve up evocative phrases that transcend the jazz and pop genres, and in Jessy J’s case, she add some gentle Latin spices.


From the opening track “Tequila Moon,” until the last notes of “Song For You” fade gently into the twilight, Jessy J’s music will charm you and hold you as a willing captive under its enchanting spell.

We Did it!!!

Thank you for your help and support of Tequila Moon...

"Tequila Moon Brezzes to No. 1..."

Chart Highlights
Posted by Gary Trust
On May 12, 2008
Radio & Records
"New No. 1's, Smooth Jazz"


At Smooth Jazz, Jessy J breezes to No. 1 on her first try, as "Tequila Moon" (CMG) rises 2-1. The Paul Brown-produced piece is the title cut from her pop and Latin-influenced debut set, which has resided in the top 20 of Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart since its March release. Jessy J (who was playing piano by age four) is currently on tour, with several dates on tap with Michael Bolton in June and July.

------------

I would like to personally thank the Musicians, without you this song
wouldn't be the same!

Paul Brown (guitar)
Greg Karukas (keys)
Roberto Vally (bass)
Sergio Gonzales (drums)
Richie Gajate Garcia (percussion)


And also the incredible people that are working behind the scenes....Peak Records, CMG, East West Media, PB, Deborah Lewow, Chapman, D.Baron Media, and all the awesome people that have been supporting this project from it's inception....

Thank you everybody~ our next goal is to get to #1 on Billboard Contemporary Jazz Sales...

If you have a moment please check out these two new wonderful reviews... :)

Musical prodigy Jessy J began her journey on the piano at age four, and she enjoyed an active career as a competitive artist, traveling to perform at major conferences, competitions, and festivals. By the age of 15 Jessy was named Piano State Champion, at the Bela Bartok festival in California. At the same time Jessy was also enjoying a successful saxophone career, performing in many state honor bands, including the Grammy Band, and international festivals like the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.  

 

Fluent in Spanish, the Samba rhythms of Cannonball Adderley’s collaborations with Sergio Mendez awakened her Latin Roots. The “sound of the music” called to her and encouraged her to explore. As a teen she studied the recordings of Cannonball Adderley and a lifelong love affair with Jazz began.

Jessy was accepted on scholarship to University of Southern California and graduated as the “Most Outstanding Jazz Student” of her class. Since then, she went on to tour the nation in various capacities and has served as member of the Henry Mancini Jazz Orchestra and the Hispanic Musician Association (HMA) Jazz Orchestra.

Extending her skills from the dance floor, Jessy J danced and played in London and Japan with the Tony and Emmy award- winning company Blast! Intertwining various forms of creative expression was a natural fit for this vibrant artisan.

 

At 26, Jessy has already worked professionally with the World’s most popular artists including Jessica Simpson, Michael Buble, Burt Bacharach, the Temptations, and she is currently on tour with Michael Bolton playing sax and singing back up vocals.

 

Jessy’s extreme desire and ambitions have placed her on the “fast track” to success. She has recently finished a smooth jazz project produced by the “Baby Face of Smooth Jazz”, Paul Brown and was hand selected by musical genius Paquito D’Rivera to perform alongside him at Carnegie Hall for an event featuring “tomorrows star musicians”. Not only have these two multiple Grammy award winning artist sung her praise, she is currently being hailed as “Sexy, irresistible, sensible, the upcoming sax star, soulful, delightful, top notch, fresh, and terrific!”, on her latest performance with Paul Brown on his Peak recording debut “White Sand”.

Carnegie Hall

I am so elated to announce that I will be performing at Carnegie Hall for the first time with Paquito D'Rivera's Latin Jazz project. Carnegie Hall has selected individuals from all over the country to perform with Paquito and I can't wait! Paquito, is one of my saxophone heroes. His work with Arturo Sandoval and Irakere has always inspired my creative process of writing exciting and original music. Irakere was considered one of the first groups to play modern "Latin Jazz". If any of you are around New York in March it would be an honor to have you there!

I am really looking forward to my upcoming performances; Paul Brown's C.D. release party at the Vault in Downtown Long Beach. Then, later in March I will be traveling to Bermuda with Salsa Caliente to perform at the Salsa Congress. I will be sure to tell you all about it when I get back!

Beyonce Audition

Last week Beyonce Knowles announced that she would be holding a national audition for her all new female band. I auditioned here in Los Angeles at Center Staging in Hollywood while other women around the country in Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, and New York/New Jersey were also auditioning. I was selected as the only saxophonist from the West Coast to fly to New York to audition for Beyonce, Jay Z, and many other recording executives. After an exhilarating and exhausting weekend of "jamming" with the best from around the country I feel so blessed and honored to have had such a wonderful experience! And I would like to thank Beyonce's staff and creative team for an unforgettable musical journey.

Happy New Year!!!

The Jessica Spinella Quintet had a fantastic performance at the Jazz Bakery last month. Thank you to all of you who made it out.

I´m excited to announce that my demo C.D. is finally here!!!!!!

Donald Hayes and I have worked on this project for about a year, and our hard work has really paid off! Check out some streaming clips from the demo on the media page.

Smooth Ride is an original composition of mine written while I was living in London. It represents a variety of Latin sounds and rhythms that will melt your ears and tantalize your senses…

Spanish Nights is a tune written by Donald Hayes, which incorporates elements of modern hip-hop, rhythm & blues, and Spanish sounding percussion instruments….

Hope you enjoy!!

Love,
Jessica
