JJ Sansaverino & Nu Jazz
FEATURING:
JJ Sansaverino, guitar
Other musicians, TBA

Over the past several years, guitarist Joe "JJ" Sansaverino has reached millions with his music, touring the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, the South Pacific, and the Caribbean. He has worked with the best in the business in a wide range of idioms, both live and in the studio, and has appeared on hundreds of recordings.



An accomplished composer, arranger, and musical director, Sansaverino was playing trumpet and violin by age 11 and the guitar by age 13. Growing up in and around New York, his diverse influences - Santana and Hendrix, as well as jazz, Motown, and doo-wop - helped mold his unique style. After performing locally in NYC for several years in the early '90s, Sansaverino embarked on his first European tour with the popular alternative rock band Heads Up.

Upon returning to the U.S., Sansaverino attended Berklee College of Music, graduating in 1994 and winning the school's prestigious Writing Award of the Year. Relocating to New York, he began performing nightly, quickly earning a reputation as one of the hardest-working musicians on the scene. It wasn't long before he started recording TV jingles and appearing and recording with artists like George Clinton, Kelly Price, SuperCat, Shabba Ranks, Monty Alexander, the Jungle Brothers, Rita and Ky-Mani Marley, and Toots and the Maytals. He eventually settled in as the lead guitarist for Maxi Priest in 2000, immediately embarking on the first of several world tours.



In 2005, Sansaverino released a stunning collection of his original compositions titled Sunshine After Midnight. The album is a diverse showcase of original guitar styles – including R&B, jazz, rock, fusion, and Sansaverino's trademark ballad style – and features many of NYC's finest musicians. Teaming up with powerhouse producers Alex Valenti and Zé Luis Oliveira, Sansaverino fused Brazilian flavor with fresh horn arrangements, giving the album a radio-friendly, street-savvy sound with a virtuosic edge.

Together with his band Nu Jazz, Sansaverino continues to perform shows around the country while simultaneously preparing for the recording of his forthcoming sophomore album, Waiting for You. A perfect follow-up to Sunshine After Midnight, the album promises to deliver a continuous array of colorful mood-provoking music with a few special guest appearances.
