“The music for Zero to 60 is incredibly varied in styles and concepts. The rhythmic complexity is there but the leading objective was to write stronger melodies. I want you to remember what you’ve heard a week down the road. Music is a reflection of the life of the composer, and I’ve certainly had a life filled with diversity. The music has a deep level of maturity and adventure. In my many years of performing, I’ve learned that when the musicians are musically challenged they reach deeply inside and produce amazing layers of creativity. In a way I’m coming back full circle to my straight up jazz roots. No funk here and all acoustic. These musicians live in this world every single day. That’s the beauty. It’s life reflected. I’ve performed many years and this longevity enables me to better merge my influences in telling a more thought-provoking compositional story. Each song is unique in structure and moves to the next with smartly woven continuity in sequencing. It’s all connected. In many ways, Zero to 60 feels like my zenith – but time will tell.” – Jae Sinnett
