How you react to Jessy J depends a great deal upon whether you see her or hear her first.

Born Jessica Spinella in Portland, Oregon, the multi-instrumentalist has carved out a sturdy reputation as a musician in the studio and onstage in bands supporting Michael Bolton, Jessica Simpson and Gloria Trevi. In 2007, she released a eponymous debut album that didn't make much of a splash. Her sophomore effort, Tequila Moon (Peak Records, 2008) has been a fixture on airplay of smooth jazz stations and recently tied Kenny G. for most consecutive weeks in the Top Five.

It's not an accident that Jessy J's good looks are prominently featured on the CD cover and booklet. Yeah, she's hot. But can she play? The runaway success of Tequila Moon says, “Yes, she can." Jazz fans aren't going to fall for slick packaging and a sexy image if you don't have some skills. Jessy J has the skills. She's not “just some chick with a saxophone."

AAJ Contributor Jeff Winbush spoke with Jessy J about her own burgeoning career, meeting up with producer Paul Brown, and working with artists including Michael Bolton and Jessica Simpson.
