TRY TO DESCRIBE JESSELEE JONES…
… and you will find that this Brazilian-American is a combination of SO many things. He is a recording artist. He is the front-man for a popular country band. He is the owner of a successful honky tonk bar. He is an entrepreneur. He is an author. He is a collector of country music memorabilia. He is an ordained Reverend. He is a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason. He is one of the few entrusted with upholding the legacy of traditional country music on Honky Tonk Row in downtown Nashville.
Above all, however, JesseLee is an entertainer, deeply inspired by the big orchestra sounds of the 60s and 70s.
To that end, and right alongside ALL the country music JesseLee has performed and nurtured over the years, he has finally been able to showcase that other side of his musical heritage — the impactful orchestra standards from a bygone era that have been so dear to his heart since he was a boy.
“BRINGIN’ IT BACK: IT IS WHAT IT WAS”
is a brand new album that is the culmination of a life-long dream to record these songs and do so with his hero —
the late, great Maestro Joe Guercio.
JesseLee’s fascinating journey from São Paulo to Nashville has finally been documented!
