Jessy J – Live Live at Yoshi’s – 10 Year Anniversary Special

Jessy JWith the release of her dynamic new album Live at Yoshi’s – 10 Year Anniversary Special, Jessy J celebrates a remarkable decade since she brought her sizzling beats, dynamic Latin and samba rhythms and sensual melodies to contemporary jazz via her #1 hit debut album Tequila Moon. Following in the tradition of other jazz greats – including Dee Dee Bridgewater, Pat Martino, Joe Pass and Arturo Sandoval – who have released albums recorded at the historic Oakland venue, the charismatic saxophonist captures the excitement and spontaneity of her live performances with a set list featuring her classic hits and several songs fresh to her eclectic repertoire.

“I felt like a live album would be the perfect way to mark the 10th anniversary of Tequila Moon, because I love performing live and it presents a completely different experience than my studio albums, with exciting interactions with the audience and the spirited ensemble action with my band,” says Jessy, whose previous releases include True Love (2009), Hot Sauce (2011), Second Chances (2013), My One and Only One (2015) and California Christmas (2016), which marked her debut on her own independent label Changi Records.

The CD was recorded live at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland, CA on Jan 28th, 2018. This is the celebration of the 10 year Anniversary of Tequila Moon. I’m excited to commemorate this experience with my fans, they have the opportunity to be heard and seen on the Live CD and videotaping of this exclusive show. The setlist will feature classics from her catalog over the past ten years including #1 hits Tequila Moon, Tropical Rain, Hot Sauce and brand new material. The album will be released April 2, 2018.
