Jesse Thompson aka “JTJazz” is an up and coming prolific and energetic musician, composer, and bandleader. JT is a native of Dayton, Ohio which is also known as “The land of the Funk”. Being the son of a father who was a professional jazz drummer and a mother who was a church organist/pianist, JT got his gift naturally and started playing the drums as his first instrument at the age of five. By the time JT was twelve years old, he played a total of thirteen instruments, the piano being one of them.

Not only was JT musically influenced by his parents, but also by his oldest brother, Marvyn Wheatley, who recorded and played with Dayton’s own R&B group, Slave. During that period, JT spent quite a bit of time with his brothers hanging out in the studio with R&B artists such as: Slave, Roger Troutman & Zapp, Steve Arrington, and others. As a passionate artist, these interactions added fuel to his creative fire, which ultimately resulted in him making the choice to produce and perform music on a regular basis.
