Features the #1 song of the Year “Tequila Moonâ€

Dec. 16, 2008

IT'S BEEN A VERY GOOD YEAR FOR PEAK RECORDS!

Label is #1

(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.

You Guys ROCK!!

Happy Holidays!

I would like to thank you all for being such loyal listeners, patrons, and supporters of music and the ARTS! With your help TEQUILA MOON has been named the NUMBER ONE song of the YEAR 2008 in Radio & Records. I can’t begin to tell you how much this means to me. I would like to thank all of you a million times, Chapman Management, Peak Records, my awesome producer- PAUL BROWN, Sheryl Fuerstein, and God for his INCREDIBLE blessings.

If you wanna get into the smooth grooves of the season please check out my very first radio program called Salsa Sunset. It will be premiering every Saturday in December @ 9pm on WINR http://www.smoothjazz4u.com/

In addition to this new show I have also recorded an entire monologue of fun and memorable stories about each song in TEQUILA MOON. This special CD set will be airing tonight @ 8pm and 10pm CST and every Wednesday in December at 8pm & 10pm CST.

I love you all and wish you and your loved ones the absolute best this Holiday Season!!!

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 Youâ€). 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:

I Love What I DO!

I love what I do…and if you do to… please vote for TEQUILA MOON!

It’s time for the 51st annual Grammy Awards! Tequila Moon has been submitted to the long list for BEST POP INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM (038- TEQUILA MOON) and BEST JAZZ INSTRUMENTAL SOLO (142- Tequila Moon).

Yay! I love the Grammy’s and am so blessed to be a voting member this year. If you get a chance, and are apart of this world-class organization, please vote for Tequila Moon and support the Awesome Musicians on this CD.

Also recently, Concord Music Group has posted this cool new blog:

http://www.concordmusicgroup.com/genres/contemporary-jazz/339/jessys-musical-upbringing/

“…when I picked up the sax around 9, my teacher turned me on to Coltrane, Charlie Parker and Cannonball Adderley, and later I got into Sergio Mendes, who like my other hero Herbie Hancock was progressive and unafraid to fuse different genres together.â€

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…

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

Love ya and hope to see you all very soon!

If you live in NY please come check out our Guitars Saxes show this weekend!

Muchos Besos,

Luv,

Jessy
