KYO KL’s 3rd Anniversary celebrations bring back to KL the one and only Jazzy Jeff on 18 January 2019.
A hip hop pioneer and icon who has won three Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two NAACP Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards and an MTV Music Award. And of course, he has recorded with Fresh Prince star Will Smith and continues to turn out truly majestic albums including The Return of the Magnificent. Jeff has also lent his hand to other notable acts including Kenny Lattimore, Tatyana Ali and soul goddess Jill Scott. As a DJ, Jazzy Jeff has to be one of the most accomplished in the world, with turntable skills honed over decades.
Jeff’s success as a producer pre-empted his brilliant insight as founder and CEO of A Touch of Jazz Inc, which was a full-scale, musical production facility housing four complete digital and analogue rooms. The studio had a hand in swathes of amazing musical projects including the theme to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air television show, a song on The Simpsons compilation album and the theme to the UPN Networks Between Brothers.
Nowadays Jazzy Jeff continues to represent with his solo projects, collaborations, mixtapes and live shows. His love of music shines through in everything he does and in his time he has picked up awards such as a DMC Championship and multiple GRAMMY and American Music Awards and nominations, yet to this day he states he is in all this simply for the love of the game.
