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.
24 Hours is the first single from Jarez's new album, J Funk City. It features Julian Vaughn on bass.
