Jeremy Benoit – Jeremy Jazz (2019 Remastered Edition )

Saxophonist Jeremy Benoit “JB Saax” is a young, passionate enthusiastic jazz artist from Lafayette, Louisiana. He began playing the saxophone at the age of 9 years old at J.W. Faulk Elementary school. It was the first instrument his band director gave him to try but almost immediately he became hooked. Developing his musical talent became a constant in his life from that point on and was a big part of his academic career. After earning his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from the University of Louisiana in the fall of 2008, and being an active part of multiple jazz combos there, he began his agressive pursuit of music.

Inspired by the likes of Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderly, Grover Washington Jr., David Sanborn and Gerald Albright, JB Saax is breaking the cloud of the great sax players of all time. He is a very ardent yet diversified performer, often lighting up the stage with both well versed jazz licks and beautifully toned embellishments. While jazz is his main stay, he also performs a wide variety of music ranging from r&b to country, pop, soft rock and top 40. Gospel music has also played an important role in shaping his artistry as he was heavily involved in music and ministry at his church throughout his adolescence. He has currently produced, recorded and released 8 musical projects, of which Smooth Jazz Grooves, JB Saax Live, Jeremy Jazz, and Moods of Smooth are available for demoing.

Saxophonist Jeremy Benoit launched his band in 2010 and without an official name, his group quickly began being known as “JB Saax” & The BaND. Soon after the expansion of his group, Saxophonist Jeremy Benoit “JB Saax” began broadening the scope of his music by performing smooth jazz encompassing songs from all manner of genres including traditional jazz, gospel jazz, R&B, country, soft rock, pop, latin, africano, dance, and blues.

Jeremy Jazz (2019 Remastered Edition) is the new album on sale at CDBaby.
