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 in 2010.

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 it allows.

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.
