By cross pollinating the sounds of Bjork’s “Big Time Sensuality”, with Joan Baez’s “Blowing in the Wind”, while dancing in a “Love Shack” with the B-52’s, and then “Stepping Out” to DJ Kaskade; you get a better understanding of the influences that helped to produce the Jazz-elle vibe.

Jazz-elle emerges a songstress who paints with sound, a canvas on which to drop funky vibes and spiritual rhythms.
Enter a techno groove land, with zones for chillin, or going politico, recommended by the surgeon general, to get your blood pumpin, heart thumping, hips humping, and time trippin, to the groove. Energized with pulsating beats, heavy bass, a touch of guitar, and Ekeys and Eeffects.
On a mission for justice and passionate for fun: Jazz-elle shares tracks inspired from her desert experiences, her call to save the planet, and her call to the wild side
“You can do anything you set your mind to; it’s not just for the few” are part of the lyrics of “Don’t Doubt It” her fourth track on “Test Your Taste Buds”. She urges her listeners to follow their dreams.
Like a desert fox, surviving the heat and hardships of the Mojave, Jazz-elle can tell you desert living is no easy journey. The lizards and coyotes became her best friends and she began to transform with them. The cover artwork for “Test Your Taste Buds” is a tribute to her lizard friends that inspire the spirit to move.
Jazz-elle’s desert experiences resulted in her motivation for such tunes as the 7th track on “Test Your Taste Buds”, “Run For Your Life.” This song was born out of her commitment to stop the aerial spraying over California. “You got your mojo, keep on your toes go, they’re behind you breaking rules making new laws,” as it goes in part.
From a call to her wild side, Jazz-elle produced “Touch Me”. As Don Campau, DJ of San Jose’s KKUP exclaims, It’s Pounding!
