Saxophonists Jessy J and Michael Lington shared images of their recent happenings through their social media accounts this past week.
First, Jessy J shared that magazine Saxophone Life is featuring her on their front cover for the month of March.
This past Tuesday, she shared the cover photo as well as her reaction on her Instagram account:
Saxophone Life is a monthly magazine that covers the lifestyles of professional sax players and offers tips for amateur players. The magazine typically features images of professional saxophone players each month and also includes an interview with the selected artist inside the month’s edition. Boney James appeared on the front cover this past Feburary.
Aside from appearing on the front cover of the magazine, Jessy J is touring around the country after her most recent release My One and Only One. The Latin jazz performer also recently announced her engagement to her boyfriend. She also celebrated the eight year anniversary of the release of her first CD album Tequila Moon, for which she earned Billboard’s Smooth Jazz Song of the Year in 2008 for the album’s title track.
Finally, Danish-born sax player Michael Lington announced this past Thursday that his new album Second Nature is available for pre-order.
He said on his Instagram account, lingtonsax, that fans can pre-order the new album by accessing a link in his profile bio. By doing this, fans will receive the new album a week before the release date, which is set for April 22 (also known as Earth Day in the U.S.).
Below is a photo of what appears to be the front cover for Lington’s new album:
Lington’s most recent album was his 2014 album Soul Appeal. The single “Uptown Groove” from this album peaked at No. 4 on Billboard’s “Smooth Jazz Songs” chart in November of that year. He also is known for his song “Show Me,” from his Stay With Me album in 2004, which received a lot of airplay at that time.
