Description

Jeanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of soul jazz from Fresno, CA. This lady understands that energetic and captivating performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the music are the solid platinum recipes for success. Classically trained in both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston's famed Berklee College of Music, and the saxophonist for the late, great Teena Marie's final year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges to bring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes. Her CD "Summer Rain" made it all the way to #4 on the Smooth Jazz Billboard Chart and # 1 on the Smooth Jazz Indie Chart! Jeanette's most recent CD Saxathrone is her best work yet, showcasing not only her amazing sax skills but also her song writing and producing skills. Jeanette had the pleasure of recording with amazing guitarist Norman Brown, who is featured on her 2011 release "Saxified", wrote for Gerald Albright and has performed with and/or opened for numerous artists including Howard Hewett, Deniece Williams, Kirk Whalum, Brian Culbertson, Gerald Albright, Najee, the Rippingtons, Babyface, Phil Perry and KEM to name a few. She has performed at a lot of popular festivals including The Catalina Jazz Festival, Capital Jazz Cruise, The Long Beach Jazz Festival, The Lake Arbor Jazz Festival, The Newport Beach Jazz Festival, The Hartford Jazz Festival, The Columbia Winter Jazz Festival and many more. Jeanette Harris is unquestionably the Queen of the Saxophone in contemporary jazz.

Guitarist and Producer Adam Hawley has burst on to the scene as a celebrated and innovative artist, composer and band leader. Handpicked by Maurice White (founder of Earth, Wind, & Fire) he first debuted on the legend's label Kalimba Music. In all, Adam’s four albums and work as a producer has spawned an incredible 15 Billboard #1 Hits. In it's first week, the 3rd record "Escape" was the #1 Selling Album in the Nation, outselling every other contemporary jazz album as per Nielsen. The debut single went on to become the Billboard and Smooth Jazz Network Song of the Year for 2020. He followed this up with the 4th album "Risin' Up;" it's title track again reached the top of the Billboard charts in late '21. 2022 was particularly successful including four more #1's, culminating with 2022 song of the year. Coupling this with a robust touring schedule throughout the world, the best is yet to come.
