“Those strings. That voice. These songs. On Jackie Gage‘s debut album Siren Songs, she establishes herself firmly as one of the most vital artists in the jazz world.” Afropunk
“She is a singer who is far in advance of her years with a flawless voice, and even more flawless diction and sensuous without being self-conscious. Jazz is Jackie Gage.” Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama
“Singer Jackie Gage is a truly great discovery, her debut album is one of the very best albums to come my way in a long time.” Peter Boehi, Smooth Jazz Vibes
Joomanji was formed in 2010 by Jonah Christian, Amir Oosman, and Robert Finucane. Their first release, MANJ, gained attention from Earmilk, BamaLoveSoul, and Pigeons & Planes, and hit #1 on Bandcamp’s Neo-Soul & Nu-Jazz Top 500 charts, respectively. The group has also been featured on Bandcamp’s Weekly homepage and Reddit’s official best of 2013 “ListentoThis”. Productions consist of live recordings mixed intermittently with vinyl chops. The resulting music is a fusion of crisp instrumentals with that vintage sound that us hip hop heads all love.
