Jessy J Dons Producer Hat
For Her New CD, “Second Chances”
It was as a member of the famed USC Trojan Marching Band that Jessy J developed confidence as a saxophone player. So it’s fitting that now, with her third CD release, she’s learning a new skill: that of producer.
With a talented group of side men, writing partners and production collaborators, Jessy J, the producer presents “Second Chances.” “Second Chances” is a major step forward for Jessy J as a producer. It features guest writers, co- producers and performances by Norman Brown, Jeff Lorber, Jimmy Haslip, Johnny Britt, & Joe Sample. In addition to eight brilliant originals, “Second Chances” includes Jessy J’s reimaging of classics by Roberta Flack “Feel Like Making Love” and Sergio Mendes’ samba “Magalenha”.
