J3 - Opus 1
J3 Opus 1 Shanachie Entertainment

Injecting a fiery hurricane of genre-transcendent energy into Smooth Jazz, the wildly talented and wise beyond their years, trio J3 is a force to be reckoned with on all levels, from the array of instruments they’ve mastered, to composing, arranging and producing all the music on their explosive and constantly engaging debut OPUS 1. Individually, South African born, Southern California based siblings Justin Lee Schultz (15) and Jamie-Leigh Schultz (18), as well as the gospel-steeped Jaden Baker (all multi-instrumentalists) have been praised by fellow boundary busting greats Quincy Jones, Robert Glasper and Harry Connick, Jr! Bookended by spirited homages to Michael Jackson and featuring sizzling arrangements of Jeff Lorber and Chick Corea gems, J3 dazzles with a freewheeling flow of improvisational jazz, jazz fusion, fiery rock, Pat Methenyesque exotica, funk, blues, and even a little hipster hip-hop for good measure.
