Jarez goal is to create and promote the finest quality entertainment possible that reflects musical integrity and expands musical awareness. Jarez creates entertainment that is uplifting and enlightening, by satisfying the needs and interests of music lovers
Jarez’s rise from the studio to the stage has
been a remarkable journey of talent, timing and authentic
showmanship.Originally trained as a jazz artist, Jarez understood the necessity
for extending his musical outreach to younger audiences, which led to a unique
business and musical partnership with hip hop guru Coolio. While managing
Coolio, Jarez simultaneously recorded and played his saxophone live around the
world with Coolio. Combining his ear for jazz with upscale interpretations of
hip hop, Jarez’s music became a prescription for bringing youth back to
instrumental music and a solo career sprang forth.
In addition to his musical career, Jarez used his knowledge to serve as a spokesperson for Environmental Justice and Climate Change’s (EJCC) campaign, which facilitates Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in educational initiatives regarding global warming. This opportunity also lent him a chance to develop his fan base even further with selections from his “Saxoholic” CD becoming the musical signature for the “Just Environment” radio show, which broadcasted weekly on from Atlanta’s Clark University’s WCLK 91.9, “The Jazz of the City,” and live online at www.wclk.com.
His ability to extend his musical outreach to fans of all ages included multiple appearances on “Cooking with Coolio.” Jarez also assisted in the production of Coolio’s cookbook of the same name, along with ongoing management of various aspects of Coolio’s business operations. This intense work ethic would be pivotal to the development of Jarez’s solo career.
A whirlwind of single releases began for the saxophonist in 2013. Jarez gained notoriety as a soloist with his 2013 release of “On Top of the World” with radio charting success, which led to the album rated as #16 on the 2014 year-end top 100 albums chart on SmoothJazz.com. Additionally, the “Make it Better” and “Can’t Let Go” singles would be in the top 100 songs chart for 2014 on GrooveJazzMusic.com. The “Hold on Tight” single featuring Vandell Andrew from Jarez’s “Sexy Saxy” Vol. 1 EP would make the World Jazz top 20 singles chart. Releasing seven singles in two years, Jarez also made it to the most added and most increased spins list on Billboard’s smooth jazz chart.
Currently, Jarez is planning another album
for late 2015 and has released the “Can’t Get Enough” single, which is
available for purchase on outlets to include Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby. Based
on the energetic charting of the past couple of years, radio and concert
promoters will need to be quick in following this saxophonist. This energy and
creative output of this artist is the prescription for the revitalization of
