Since the inception of jazz into mainstream music, numerous variations of the genre have evolved. However, the smoothest sounds of the style continues to grab the attention of the population the most. One of the most relaxing and disarming smooth jazz artists is Jackiem Joyner. Joyner combines the modern sounds of R&B into his particular jazz style in order to produce an up to date and appealing sound that appeals to several.
Growing in popularity with each passing year, Joyner's style of saxophone play is obviously one of the best around. Born in Virginia and raised in New York by a single parent, Jackiem developed his musical skill during childhood, though he did not begin with the most peaceful of instruments. Drums were his first choice of talent and he also participated in church choir events as well. Winning various NAACP awards for his musical abilities, he continued to expound and hone his musical skills as he began to extend his interests to the saxophone. Presently, he is one of the most talented jazz saxophonists in the business.
Joyner's sound is engaging and thought provoking. His music invites listeners to completely dispel all negative energies and stresses as they become engrossed in the palpable notes. Joyner's album "Baby Soul" is a personal favorite of mine. On one of his most notable tracks "Stay With Me Tonight," Joyner collaborates with well known jazz guitarist Peter White to produce a gorgeous and incomparable listen for anyone wanting to unwind. Joyner's website jackiemjoyner.com provides fans with tour dates, information and opportunities to purchase music. Check out this artist, and find out why he has spent several weeks at #1 on the top 50 smooth jazz list during his tenure as one of the best saxophonists in the business.
