 You may know him from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air or from producing Jill Scott, but Jazzy Jeff is probably also the best turntablist you will ever hear.

Iconic tunes... Summertime / Fresh Prince of Bel Air / Boom Boom Shake the Room / I Wanna Rock / Jazzy’s theme and more..

In 1985 Jeffrey Allen Townes exploded onto the music scene as half of the superstar duo known as DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (long-time partner/performer/actor Will Smith). Since then they have gone on to sell over ten million records worldwide. The infamous pop-rap pair has also won three Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two NAACP Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards and an MTV Music Award.

In 1990 Jeff fulfilled his long-time dream and started A Touch of Jazz Inc. in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ATOJ is a full-scale, musical production facility. Housing four complete digital and analog rooms, A Touch of Jazz Studios also has a variety of vintage microphones, keyboards and gear. Pre-production, recording, and mixing are performed magically and almost effortlessly by a team of talented young producers. Jazzy Jeff prides himself on the laid-back atmosphere that allows all those who enter to feel unity and inspiration. The result of this relaxed attitude is what has made ATOJ renowned and revered as THE place to create music.

A Touch of Jazz Inc. has various musical credits to its name including the theme to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air television show, a song on The Simpsons compilation album and the theme to the UPN Network’s Between Brothers. ATOJ produced songs on the Wild Wild West, Love Jones, The Wood, and In Too Deep movie soundtracks. A Touch of Jazz has also worked with Kenny Lattimore, Tatyana Ali, MC Lyte, Darius Rucker (front man for Hootie and the Blowfish), and pop star Jewel, who has ATOJ releases on both her latest release 0304, and an upcoming album by hip-hop violinist Miri Ben Ari. Jeff produced three songs on Will Smith’s first solo album and served as executive producer on Will’s second solo project, aptly titled Willenium, which is now multi-platinum.

Jeff’s success as a producer pre-empted his brilliant insight as founder and CEO of A Touch of Jazz Inc. and now his instincts are leading him to sculpt, perfect and project his already definitive music into the future. Jazzy Jeff and his producers’ A Touch Of Jazz style have succeeded in providing acts with substance and stability. The future holds only hope and anticipation for the growth enterprise A Touch of Jazz has already become, built by the man that has already been.
