As a recording artist, Jae Sinnett has 12 recordings out as a leader, the first of which was released in 1986 – called “Obsession.” Featured on this project were: The former director of the Count Basie Orchestra – Frank Foster playing saxophone, John Hicks, piano, Wallace Roney, trumpet, Steve Wilson, saxophone and Clarence Seay, bass. The swinging sextet release “Blue Jae” followed in 1992. “House and Sinnett” came out in 1994 and featured Cyrus Chestnut and Steve Wilson. “Listen” was released in 1997 with Jesse Davis, alto, John D’earth, trumpet, Billy Pierce, tenor saxophone, Allen Farnham and Cyrus Chestnut, piano and went to the number one slot on the Gavin Jazz radio charts in July of that year.
His fifth recording “The Better Half” was released in April 1999 featuring the sensational saxophonist Chris Potter and his current working trio with pianist Allen Farnham and bassist Terry Burrell. “The Better Half” made it to number 10 on the charts in June of 1999 and this recording represented a different musical direction with Jae’s writing. Following in the footsteps of “The Better Half,” “Off the Myopic Avenue” was released in 2000 – which also features the trio and special guest saxophonist Elias Haslanger. “Confluence” the seventh was released in 2003. This is the first release that solely features the trio. In 2005 the “masterpiece” “The Sinnett Hearings” was released and features some of Jae’s best writing, arranging and drumming. This is the first of his eight releases in which he wrote and arranged every composition and “The Sinnett Hearings” became the first jazz cd to debut number one on the national jazz radio charts in January of 2006! The CD is sonically beautiful and is a wonderful vehicle in showcasing the groups high-level musicianship. It is a powerful and soulful mix of thought provoking grooves and improvisation. In 2008 the explosive “It’s Telling…A Drummer’s Perspective” was released and became Jae’s most played recording on Pandora. Every song on It’s Telling is designed to feature Jae’s extraordinary drumming. It features his trio and saxophonist Steve Wilson. “This is the recording I’ve always wanted to do in showcasing what I feel is my true drumming ability. Every song is designed to feature the drums in various capacities.” Truly, a compelling piece of work. Complex, dense, introspective and visionary, “It’s Telling,” has it all and demonstrates the extraordinary musicianship of each member of the group. In 2010 Jae formed a soul/funk ensemble called House & Sinnett and released the seriously funky Old School Loyalty CD featuring outstanding vocals, horn arrangements and writing. Jae’s first live date Theatre was also released in 2010 featuring his current working trio of Thelonious Monk piano competition finalist Justin Kauflin and bassist Terry Burrell. His latest release Still Standing was produced in 2012 features the trio with both Allen Farnham and Justin playing on different tracks.
In Jae’s first performance/instructional video called “Musical Drumming Concepts” was released in 2001. “Modern Drummer” magazine rated it an “8” out of “10.” It showcases his compositions, philosophical teaching skills and drumming in various styles, meters and straight and swinging eighth note concepts. In 2009 the trios first live concert DVD Jae Sinnett Trio: Live At WHRO was released. Recorded in the TV studios of WHRO public television for Hampton Roads. Jae’s dream of having the trio perform with orchestra will be realized in July of 2014 with the Bemidji Symphony…performing Jae’s music with orchestrations done by pianist Allen Farnham. Jae is a very lyrical and intelligent composer and his music works beautifully for orchestrations. He’s written over 150 compositions. He’s also scored music for five documentaries – one of which (John Biggers: Stories of Illumination) was aired on PBS. His other professional life puts him near the beginning of his 24th year as jazz producer/host for National Public Radio affiliate, WHRV-FM, 89.5 in Norfolk, VA. Jae hosts an extremely popular jazz show called “Sinnett In Session” Monday through Thursday evenings from 9pm-1am and Sunday afternoons from 1pm-5pm. His new show is called “The R&B Chronicles” heard Friday evenings at 7pm. Both of which now can be heard On Demand.
