SAX AND the City showcases the
incredible synergy of the charismatic Marion Meadows, Jessy J and
Paul Taylor, with special guests Joe McBride and Will Brock
capturing all of the soulful grooves, dazzling melodies and seductive magic that
have become a trademark. The Latin infusion of Jessy J and the awesome smooth of
Paul Taylor, together with the east coast funk of Marion Meadows is a must hear
and see! From the Newport Jazz Festival to the Catalina Jazz Trax Festival and
the All-Star Smooth Jazz Cruises, Marion Meadows, Jessy J and Paul Taylor have
dazzled fans around the world.
With her sizzling mix of hot beats, Latin and samba rhythms, captivating
melodies and mode looks, Jessy J is quite the sensation as is her
latest CD Hot Sauce. Saxophone Journal Magazine said, “Few musicians, no matter
the musical genre, have made as powerful of an immediate impact as this talented
multi-instrumentalists and composer.”
Marion Meadows has been a staple of the smooth jazz format since
the 90’s with such hits as “Keep it Right Here,” “In Deep,” “Dressed to Kill”
and “Secrets.” Ronald Jackson of The Smooth Jazz Ride said about Marion Meadows’
latest CD Whisper, "The material here is full of the Meadows musical diary of
influences and style. Powerful, melodious, sensuous, and full of creative
passion all at once. Here is, quite simply, another masterful effort from
Meadows who has, throughout the years since and including his 1990 debut,
continually worked his musical benevolence on jazz and R&B fans everywhere."
One of smooth jazz’ most popular live attractions, Paul Taylor’s
career reached a fever pitch in 2004 when “Steppin Out,” the title track from
his 2003 Top Ten Billboard Contemporary Jazz album, became Riding Record’s third
biggest airplay cut of the year. Like a funky Swiss watch, for the better part
of this decade Paul Taylor has been a model of consistency, one of the most
reliable sources of jazzy R&B instrumental music. Taylor has earned himself a
dedicated fan base with his consistently pleasing releases such as Primetime,
Burnin’ and Ladies Choice.
From start to finish SAX AND the City possesses a sound vibe that will
satisfy music lovers who are seeking solid urban adult contemporary music. It
takes you on an enjoyable musical ride that you wish would not end.
Vocalist Pamela Hart, the opening act, is the
voice many regard as “Austin’s First Lady of Jazz” as expressed by Austin Woman
Magazine. Her perfectly phrased renditions of classic Jazz standards,
contemporary music and compositions composed just for her make for a stunning
