NiNi Love JazzySide Quintet

Nini Love's JSQ Website

A five-piece group, fronted by NiNi Love, delivers the best in urban
contemporary jazz, classic R&B, soul and more.

NiNi Love is the daughter of Sam Taylor, Jr. (Bluzman Sam) and a mesmerizing vocalist that you are certain to enjoy. Her vocal expression is best defined as “… an Amazing Experience”. She gracefully flows through the genres of music such as Jazz, R&B, Classic Rock, Blues with an energetic passion that is truly her own! Audiences of all ages are irresistibly, compelled to engage the musical journey as they are magically entertained.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in Columbus, Ohio NiNi Love always “dreamed” of taking the stage and singing her heart out.  However, being overwhelmingly shy hindered her most of her life. Nevertheless, the pulling of destiny led her to peek onto a few local recreation center stages as a teenager, singing with her best friend acapella gospel songs of notorious and legendary groups Commissioned (Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Keith Staten) and The Winans.

Moving into adulthood and receiving Christ Jesus as her Lord and Savior, NiNi became a Youth Leader, which led her into Gospel Rap.  With fear no longer being an overwhelming force, NiNi was the powerful female rapper in the Gospel Rap groups 7eaven (Angela the Messenger) and OKM & Nigh.  She performed constantly in local events, Ohio and Kentucky prison systems (adult and juvenile), and street ministry events; as well as, travelling evangelically with Eternal Power Ministries.

NiNi Love has worked with Ohio native Bizzy Bone (Bone, Thugs n Harmony); the late Juan “Enock” James (Cross Movement), and has completed one project entitled, “Nigh N2 The Light” produced by Majumi Gondwe (Maj Beatz).  Additionally, NiNi has worked with Rick Robinson (Double R) CEO of Soul Food Muzic (IMG Records) and Brian “Mr. Real” Hill (Grapetree Records).

As time passed, NiNi Love joined with local R&B group, New Legga-C Showband as a background singer.  She would advance on to become the lead female vocalist as a matter of chance.

In recent years, NiNi chose to explore the opportunity to broaden her vocal abilities into the Jazz arena.  Always loving the sounds of jazz … the voices of jazz … the feel of jazz.  She, along with Mr. Fidor, Cleve Brown, Eddie McNeal, John Carson and Doc Gaskins have come to form the NiNi Love JazzySide Quintet!  Within this group NiNi blends all of the experience and God-given gifts into an amazing musical experience:  It’s not just Jazz – it’s jazz-y … and funky … and sultry … and (enter your adjective).
