New York guitarist JJ Sansaverino has long been one of the greats of the smooth jazz genre. Since his debut album Sunshine After Midnight (2005) it took a bit longer that his sophomore album Waiting For You (2014) was released. His third album was International Groove (2021) followed by Cocktails & Jazz (2021). Now he is back with Soul Energy (2022).
