Born in Norfolk, saxophonist, producer, composer and author Jackiem Joyner played drums in the church choir before he took up the saxophone in high school. “Babysoul”, Joyner’s first album, debuted at #15 on the Billboard chart in 2007. Four more albums followed and both with his own band as well as with big names like Keiko Matsui, Jackiem toured the world extensively. Still being a young turk on the contemporary jazz scene, he is far from complacent and staid in his sound and style. Ten years after his debut, Joyner has now released his sixth CD. He approached crafting that album with a three-pronged purpose: it should be “upbeat”, fun to listen to and something to dance to. “‘Main Street Beat’ originally started off as a straight funk record that eventually became some of that, but a whole lot more as I allowed the creative process to have its way with me,” says Jackiem, who named the first single from the funky, dance inspiring and Motown-influenced session after his daughter: “Trinity”.
