"Bloomin' Passion, helping yours inspire kids into happy adults"

Will Jaxx-The Dope Trombone

Will Jaxx

As a toddler, Will Jaxx was immersed in a colorful soundscape created by phenomenal artists such as Al Green, Earth, Wind, and Fire, and the Modern Jazz Quartet. His musical ability began to quickly assert itself and by age 12, the trombone was his preferred method of expression.  

During his formative years, Will Jaxx studied with several masters of the instrument including: Mark McConnell (Atlanta Opera), Stephen Wilson (Atlanta Symphony Orchestra), and Scott Hartman (Empire Brass Quintet). This trifecta helped him develop an exquisite technique and a uniquely captivating style, which later garnered him the Louis Armstrong Award for Jazz and induction into Who's Who in Music.  

 In 1998, Will Jaxx became Principal Trombonist with Rohi Productions in their presentation of "King of Glory," an off-Broadway, Gospel stage play. That tenure ended in 2008 when the play went on hiatus. Then, after several more years playing behind artists such as Allen Tussaint, Kathleen Bertrand, and Angie Stone, and establishing himself as a premier stage/theater musician, Mr. Jaxx decided that it was time to step into the limelight and express his own creative vision.  

His debut album, "Dichotomy," presents a milestone in Urban Jazz Music. Soulful vocalise on trombone are perfectly matched with superb live musicians, decadent vocals, and artful studio cuts to produce silky smooth tracks that retain an urban sensibility. Audiences are immersed in a sonic bath of Neo-Soul, Chill, and NuJazz. If you like music with hip, head-bobbing flava, then you'll love the delicious melodies crafted by this “King of the Slide”. Add the album to your playlist today and experience for yourself the sound, and the swagger that is… Will Jaxx!
