ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Forced by his mother to join the elementary school band, deciding on a single instrument grew difficult to choose when surrounded by so many for JWhite. But when asked which would he like to play, unknowingly JWhite’s answer would unlock an incredible future.
“I guess that one…I like the way it’s shaped”
Ground-breaking artists like John Coltrane and Kenny G. – daring, innovative, and fearless – they changed the jazz world forever and opened doors for a new generation of musicians. Enter Detroit, Michigan native “JWhite”,  a young, vibrant, versatile performer who has not only taken the torch from the aforementioned superstars: he is creating his own destiny with all-around talent rarely seen in the entertainment world. In fact, JWhite has already shared the stage alongside many industry greats like Smokie Norful, Dave Hollister, Warren Hill, Nick Colionne, Peter White, Euge Groove, Eric Darius, Eric Roberson, P.J. Morton and urban jazz saxophonist and flautist, Najee.  Most recently, JWhite took runner up at the Warren Hill Sax Summit (2013), competing with Saxophonist from all of the world!  As a result, JWhite was added on the Arizona Jazz Festival (2013) and rocked the stage! JWhite was such a hit, he was added on the San Diego Jazz Festival (2013, 2014), Las Vegas Jazz Festival (2013), Arizona Jazz Festival (2014) and  Jazz at the Creek (San Diego, 2014).  In 2014, the "JWhiteMusic" movement has reached Jazz venues in Detroit, Philly, and California. 
JWhite began to develop quickly in music, studying privately under the late Emil Acitelli. His efforts eventually lead to a music scholarship attending the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, where J.White earned his Bachelor’s Degree in music and performed with the Marching Band, Wind Symphony, and toured with the Jazz Ensemble under the direction of the late Odie Burrus.  While in College, JWhite began to tour all over the State of Arkansas and Memphis performing with a local show band.  It was at the tender age of 20 when JWhite learned about showmanship, connectivity, and musical excellence.  
Musically, JWhite lists everyone from Gerald Albright, Cannonball Adderly, and Kirk Whalum to Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, and Grover Washington, Jr. as major influences. His own style and presentation borrows from the Pastelle and Rosewood movement, the contemporary urban scene, and youthful expressions from around the globe. JWhite'’s music is without a doubt soulfully-driven, and technically motivated intertwining the sounds of Smooth Jazz with a hint of Straight Ahead Jazz to deliver a sensual, harmonic, and melodic sound.
“I want my music to have identity and purpose and be felt by people from all walks of life. The freedom and life I feel when I’m on stage or in a night club playing with my eyes closed, is the same feeling I want listeners to experience when they turn my records on.”  JWhite’s first single entitled, “Driven” peaked at #18 on the Billboard Charts, and has been in heavy rotation on Sirius XM Watercolors as well as stations all over the country.
JWhite is a songwriter, producer and musician who commands your attention with amazing, soulful sounds. Just listening to him for a first time, you sense his passion. He is a fearless, determined, talented young artist. With the release of his latest EP entitled, “Fearless”, it will only be a matter of time before this dynamic young man becomes a household name.
