  • The Journey and Collaboration with Jesse Thompson ft Judah Sealy on LATE NITE

    Jesse "JTJazz" Thompson, multi-talented composer, pianist, and keyboardist, born in "The Land Of Funk" (Dayton, Ohio) attributes his humble beginnings in music to being captivated by a family of musicians: a father who was a professional drummer, Thompson's mother--a church organist/pianist and his brother Marvyn Wheatley (who recorded and played with Parliament and Slave). Industry influences were soul/funk legends The Ohio Players, Lakeside, and Zapp featuring Roger Troutman. Driven to continue the legacy of great musicianship, Thompson became a member of the popular Columbus-based, R&B/Jazz group NexLevel for several years. The collectives released two albums, a string of singles, and shared stages with countless notable artists.

    In 2021 Thompson wrote and released the uptempo, feel-good melody, "Weekend Groove," ft Althea Rene which catapulted the musician into solo artist, status.

    Thompson would go on to release a 7-song EP, in 2022, intriguingly titled The Inauguration of JTJazz (Jesse Thompson- the man behind the keys) marking the commencement of a new pathway, and birthing several singles from the project. Judah Sealy, a rising creative within the contemporary jazz genre, is known for his unique sound that comes from a blend of R&B, jazz, gospel, neo-soul, and funk...the common thread between himself and Jesse "JTJAZZ" Thompson. With 2024 being a 'leap year which some say is the year of inspiration, Thompson has resolutely followed his passion by keeping his legacy in music alive by teaming with heavyweight Producer/Guitarist Adam Hawley and collaborating with highly sought after Saxophonist Judah Sealy to create an alluring mid- tempo track entitled, "Late Nite," which drops worldwide 4/1/2024.
