Cincinnati, Ohio based “JAMSET's latest CD Live and Jazzin' It Up is a musical gem. The band, led by bassist Kerry “Smurf" Jordan, blends modern jazz with funk, soul and even hip-hop elements. Jamset's new release combines live concert songs and studio cuts. Advance radio airplay is already strong worldwide and Kerry “Smurf" Jordan was recently featured in the February 2012 edition of Bass Player magazine.

Jamset's Live and Jazzin' It Up is released on the DMAR Entertainment Label. Listeners and radio programmers can go to CDBaby for Jamset info and CD ordering.

Live and Jazzin' It Up leads off with a phenomenal concert rendition of the Bob James classic “West Chester Lady." Jamset makes the song its own with funky rhythms and one can feel the crowd vibing on Jamset's live performance. Another highlight is the song “Taxes (American Love Affair)" which is graced by the amazing voice of Ms. Jaz, a stellar jazz/soul singer on the DMar Entertainment label. The CD concludes with “Mikey's Song" which features a smooth jazz feel and hip-hop elements.

Jamset consists of Kerry “Smurf" Jordan on Bass, Omar Kemet on Keyboards, Sheila “Ms. Jaz" Jordan on Percussion/Vocals and Warren Miller on Drums/Percussion. Several of the members are session and touring musicians who have played and opened for acts such as Roy Ayers, Phil Perry, Ronnie Laws, Pieces Of A Dream, Regina Belle and most recently, Pam “Saxtress" Williams. Kerry “Smurf" Jordan also played bass in Millie Jackson's “Facts of Life" band.

Jamset is presently conducting a worldwide radio promotion campaign and plans to tour heavily this spring and summer.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
