Jaman”Wakati”Laws

Los Angeles, California based Jaman Laws grew up in the renowned musical Laws family. He is an extraordinary saxophonist known to his audience as “SILK”.  He also plays the flute, piano, is an accomplished producer and songwriter and actor.  Jaman is the son of legendary saxophonist Ronnie Laws and at an early age, Laws showed an interest in music while traveling on tour with his father Ronnie.  He began to learn the techniques and sounds of the music greats like Earth, Wind and Fire, Miles Davis, John Coltrain, Stevie Wonder, The Jazz Crusaders, and many more. At the age of ten, his father bought him his first alto saxophone and encouraged him to study music in school.  Jaman began performing in the school bands, learning how to read and play music, as well as how to play by ear. After graduating high school he decided to take his music career further by attending local junior colleges while performing on the road with his father. At the age of 20, Laws started playing locally in the Los Angeles area at open jam sessions. He started to discover and absorb as much as he could from the musicians around him. While playing live, he started to develop a name for himself and began performing with local bands, playing reggae, R&B, hip-hop, and jazz. One of his first official gigs was with well known drummer Norman Conners, who inspired and motivated Jaman to channel himself more and more into the music scene while getting his start at venue such as The House of Blues, Whiskey A GoGo, Catalina Jazz Club, The World Stage.  He soon began playing with his two aunts Eloise and Debra Laws, and eventually got to showcase his talents on the HBO special “Lakawanna Blues”. While playing with other groups, Jaman always planned to pursue a solo career. Jaman “Silk” Laws began writing and arranging his own music, a fusion of hip-hop, funk, jazz, and soul and he has just finished his first solo record entitled “Imagery”, produced by Craig T. Cooper and Ronnie Laws.  Silk’s genre of music is Adult Contemporary.  Now Laws travels nationwide giving his audiences a spellbinding performance that only “Silk” can deliver.
