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:

Coming up this week:

I'll be your very special host DJ on Watercolors

That's Sirius XM channel 71.


October Guest Artist Hour: Jessy J (2-3pm ET)

October brings a month of guest DJs to Watercolors! Each Thursday, your favorite contemporary jazz artists are taking over the Watercolors studio. This Thursday at 2pm ET, c-jazz saxophonist Jessy J is your host, sharing stories and songs from her new release True Love.

Latest news- I'm off to London for a week of shows with the Awesome Paul Brown !! Then when I return we'll be helping KSSJ celebrate a new CD release at Borders!

And how can we forget the Beautiful Santa Catalina Jazztrax festival! Shows in Florida & the cool Blues Alley in SEATTLE!!

Too many goodies in one month!

Stay happy and blessed!

“Top New Artist of 2008”

~ Radio & Records

Saxophonist Jessy J made the biggest splash with the title track from her debut CD, “Tequila Moon” (peak/CMG)

~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)


Hot Artist


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."


"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."


“increasing the boundaries of jazz both musically and demographically”


“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. “

~Jazz Police

“pleasing melodies, sexy-sultry sound, jazz instincts come alive… flawless… This new talent has staying power.”

~Jazz times

"Jessy´s cool tones, her hot saxophone licks and her lovely laid-back vocals and overall sensuality, TEQUILA MOON is one heck of a debut. I'm lovin' it!"

~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"

"...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! "


"Multi-talented...break through...dazzilng...special! "

-Urban Music Scene


-Billboard Music

"Jazz Sensibilities…Stand Out…"

- Jazz Times Magazine


- Smooth Jazz monthly

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...

"And the Greatest of these is Love'
