Jay-Nya Sol or Jay Nya Sol is a project by Ohio based
producer, songwriter and multiinstrumentalist T. Burns.
He started his solo debut CD A Jazzical Journey
Now he returns with the new album Dancing in the
Moonlight (2016) featuring among others Gerald
Albright (bass, sax) and Cal Bennett (sax), Anthony
Crawford, Takahito Mori, Freddy Jenkins, Matt Yeakley,
and Sheldon Reynolds (guitar), Keith McKelly
(keyboards, sax), Isha Love (keyboards, piano), Vanessa
Bryan (vocals), Rahmlee Michael Davis (trumpet) and of
course T. Burns (percussion, vocals, keyboards).
The album takes off with Midnight, a sonic tune
with a romantic touch. Infectious flute and acoustic
guitar are spreading a cozy atmosphere of wellbeing.
No Ordinary Love, is a song by singer Sade from their
fourth studio album Love Deluxe (1992). The
rendition replaces the silky original by a guitar driven
piece with melancholy-tinged thoughtfulness featuring
Vanessa Bryan as interpret of the main theme.
Dancing In The Moonlight features Isha Love's
incredibly well performed piano play, absolutely an
attention grabber. Gerald Albright doubles on
Afternoon Delightful his efforts by playing bass
and sax. With such a prominent support T. Burns has
enough space to flow on the keys.
Pick You up at Eight has a certain Wayman
Tisdale flavor with Anthony Crawford on bass in the
lead. Slow It Down presents saxophonist Keith
McKelly who delivers elegance and harmony in perfection.
Step Inside My Life lets the lamplight
shine on guitarist Freddy Jenkins, in the heart a blues
guitarist, with awesome riffs.
Latina Love keeps the guitars in the forefront
with guitarist Sheldon Reynolds and a guitar solo by Takahito
Mori. Well performed with a big punch of Latin fever. On
the trace of Miles Davis follows trumpeter Rahmlee
Michael Davis who excels on Warping of Time.
On the R&B flavored Tokyo Sunrise T. Burns
surprises with his voluminous voice. Guitarist Takahito
Mori and vocalist Tamaki Okamoto serve some Japanese
savor. Taking the First Step holds your
attention with Burns' virtuosity as musician on a great
array of instruments.
Saxophonist Cal Bennett is a stunning sit up on
Night Stepping, the real wizard is however T. Burns
on the keys. A brief message but so profound. The tender
words I Love You gain with music even more
content. The title Let's Make a Memory is
possible to many interpretations. Certainly not a
lullaby. Pamsong revels in harmonies as only smooth jazz
With an all-encompassing artistry T. Burns has already
attained high acclaims by many critics. Now Dancing
In The Moonlight should bring economic success and
wide attention of the listeners.
