Jay and his music has found a way into the hearts of many with his smooth, but fiery,
guitar licks and passion of the fretboard. Best known as a guitarist, he’s also a singer,
songwriter, producer, pianist, music instructor and church music director. He’s
performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Jeff Lorber,

goes on…


Ratio, the band, is composed of six members that are both young and some who have been performing in Phoenix for over 20 years. They produce music richly-flavored with both seasoned and fresh talent. Ratio has been acknowledged as “Best Jazz Band in Phoenix” from the New Times and “Best Blues Band” by the Arizona Republic.
As the name “Ratio” indicates, the band performs a balanced repertoire of music for their audiences. Their unique “Phoenix style” includes jazz, blues, R&B, Latin, pop, and a little bit of classical.
