True Love by Jessy J a Smooth Jazz Show Stopper.
Jazz saxophonist Jessy J was born Jessica Spinella in Portland, Oregon. Growing up in Hemet, California she began playing the piano at age four. At 15, she was named Piano State Champion at the Bela Bartok Festival in California. Later, she switched instruments to the saxophone. This University of Southern California graduate earned a degree in jazz studies. Jessy turned professional, finding work backing Michael Buble in the recording studio and playing in the touring bands for the Temptations, & Jessica Simpson. Her big break came when Producer/guitarist Paul Brown gave her a featured spot in his show in 2006. She signed with Peak Records and released her breakout CD, Tequila Moon in March of 2008. Tequila moon was produced by Paul Brown. The CD topped our smooth jazz charts for six month's and was my pick for recording of the year. Jessy new release, True Love (2009 Concord Jazz) is a more mature sound than Tequila Moon. She continues her collaboration with Paul Brown. I think True Love serves notice to the Jazz World that Jessy J is here to stay. That prospect makes me smile. True Love by Jessy J is on my "must hear list." http://www.jessyj.com/ http://twitter.com/JessyJSax
