Her shows are seasoned with authentic Latin zing and packed with real jazz flavor! She is a wonderful singer, songwriter and saxophonist and is currently being hailed as “Sexy, irresistible, sensible, the upcoming sax star, soulful, delightful, top notch, fresh, and terrific!” (www.jessyj.com)
Jessy’s special musical guest will be the very warm and sensual Kim Waters, often referred to as the Romantic Pied Piper of Urban Jazz. He is one of the top five best-selling instrumentalists in jazz. His winning combination of sensitivity and brawn, intellect and emotion, coupled with his technique and soulfulness have helped him to score over thirteen #1 hits and over 20 Top 10 hits.
This will be a show where nothing will be held back – Absolutely nothing! (www.kimwaters.net)
