Jeanette Harris 2nd Annual “Saxy Summer Night” feat. Adam Hawley

May 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Jeanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of soul jazz from
Fresno, CA. This lady understands that energetic and captivating
performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the
music are the solid platinum recipes for success. Classically trained
in both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of
Music, and the saxophonist for the late, great Teena Marie’s final
year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges to
bring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes.  Her CD
“Summer Rain” made it all the way to #4 on the Smooth Jazz Billboard
Chart and # 1 on the Smooth Jazz Indie Chart!  Jeanette’s most recent
CD Saxathrone is her best work yet, showcasing not only her amazing
sax skills but also her song writing and producing skills.  Jeanette
had the pleasure of recording with amazing guitarist Norman Brown, who
is featured on her 2011 release “Saxified”, wrote for Gerald Albright
and has performed with and/or opened for numerous artists including
Howard Hewett,  Deniece Williams, Kirk Whalum, Brian Culbertson,
Gerald Albright, Najee, the Rippingtons, Babyface, Phil Perry and KEM
to name a few.  She has performed at a lot of popular festivals
including The Catalina Jazz Festival, Capital Jazz Cruise, The Long
Beach Jazz Festival, The Lake Arbor Jazz Festival, The Newport Beach
Jazz Festival, The Hartford Jazz Festival, The Columbia Winter Jazz
Festival and many more.  Jeanette Harris is unquestionably the Queen
of the Saxophone in contemporary jazz.

Guitarist and Producer Adam Hawley has burst on to the scene as a
celebrated and innovative artist, composer and band leader. Handpicked
by Maurice White (founder of Earth, Wind, & Fire) he first debuted on
the legend’s label Kalimba Music. In all, Adam’s four albums and
work as a producer has spawned an incredible 15 Billboard #1 Hits. In
it’s first week, the 3rd record “Escape” was the #1 Selling Album in
the Nation, outselling every other contemporary jazz album as per
Nielsen. The debut single went on to become the Billboard and Smooth
Jazz Network Song of the Year for 2020. He followed this up with the
4th album “Risin’ Up;” it’s title track again reached the top of the
Billboard charts in late ’21. 2022 was particularly successful
including four more #1’s, culminating with 2022 song of the year.
Coupling this with a robust touring schedule throughout the world, the
best is yet to come.
