He is perfect for our Not Just Jazz Network platform and what it stands for” says Jaijai Jackson creator of The Jazz Network Worldwide and the Not Just Jazz Network. I am very proud to face a new "era" musically and excited for this new stage in my career.  Music is my soul and I get joy sharing it with different people from around the world. The recognition of how I interpret great classic jazz songs vocally has created new horizons for me that I am thankful for.  My goal is to bring my music to the U.S. and create wonderful alliances.  My upcoming show in November will be a new modern sound experience, exploring fusions of jazz and electro-style blends. I want to thank Jaijai Jackson who agreed to present my new music to several festivals and exclusive venues around the globe. I hope I can meet YOU there! Kind regards!
