PEOPLE ESPANOL!!! ****
People 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!
We are excited to announce a very special cooking contest featuring Tapatio
Hot Sauce that includes fabulous prizes- like cooking classes, vacation gettaway packages,
and more! Stay tuned right here for the details....

What People Are Saying!
"Saxophonist Jessy J has been a bright light on the smooth jazz scene since releasing her debut album three years ago. Her latest effort, Hot Sauce, taps into her Latin influences on such tracks as 'Meant To Be.'"
-Voice of America
"By all means, add this caliente to your musical stew ASAP. She's proven herself mightily in the past but this outing ups her own game."
"With Hot Sauce, Jessy J exhibits new musical elements in her performance like Latin music and soulful jazz appealing with her sensual diversity beyond the genre."
-Smooth & Soul

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.
