Top 100 Smoooth Jazz National Chart

Latest Single "It's All Good"


Staton not only soothes the soul and mind, he explores the smooth jazz cosmos with interesting beats and keyboard vibes that serve as a sonic backdrop to his exceptional skills as a premiere sax player and melodic songwriter. Staton makes it all sound so effortless. His music is the perfect accompaniment to a romantic evening in front of the fireplace with glass of red wine in-hand.” 


Nominated by Veer Magazine Music Awards for 2013 Best In Jazz, J. Staton is a writer and producer with a unique sound and approach that is definitely his own. His debut album, This Mind of Mine (2013) and single project Its All Good (2018) is a mixture of smooth melodic grooves and a taste of funk.

Staton has appeared at the Apollo Theater and has shared the local and national stage with artists Gerald Albright, Norman Connors, Jennette Harris, Avery Sushine and Peter White. Staton has also opened for artists Jeff Lorber, Eric Darius and Ben Tankard.

One of the hidden gems of Hampton Roads, VA area is saxophonist James Staton. His smooth style captures the attention and provides a listening pleasure that is hard to escape. He is truly one of my favorite jazz musicians.
“One of the area’s hottest new recording artist with worldwide appeal. Rock steady. J. Staton is one to watch.”
An up and coming recording artist with very good tone on the saxophone.
I highly recommend the recent released by J. Staton, This Mind Of Mine. Great sax playing backed with soulful grooves makes this CD and enjoyable listen especially like the cover of the whispers hit, “Rock Steady.”
