#2. Jordan L. Jones shared his feeling as Jazz cast

Actor Jordan L. Jones (who has also appeared on other TV shows like Snowfall and Rel) and his portrayal of Jazz has already become a fan-favorite of the show. Part of it is the cool suaveness Jones brings to the character, transforming the original’s more comedic Jazz (portrayed by DJ Jazzy Jeff) into a charming smooth-talker who keeps himself busy as an Uber driver and vinyl store owner. But it’s also the sage wisdom he offers Will as his confidant, able to tell him what he needs to hear in a caring but direct way that steers him in the right direction. These two parts flesh out Jazz in an interesting way, paying homage to Jazzy Jeff’s real life as a DJ and music lover while modernizing the fictional version of himself he portrayed in the original.
Jones’ portrayal of the character has even been approved by Jazzy Jeff himself. Jones told Okayplayer during a Zoom interview: “He doesn’t give me too much advice because he loves what I’m doing… He’s telling me I’m doing everything to the best of my ability. He told me I made his family proud. I’m like, ‘Oh my God.'”

#3. He is the New Jazz

One of the best characters on the original Fresh Prince was the man who played Will Smith’s best friend, DJ Jazzy Jeff. Jordan L. Jones is the new Jazz, and we cannot wait to see him take on this role and see what he does with it. He’s one of the best characters in the show, after all.
“I’m glad that in this drama, [Bel-Air creator] Morgan [Cooper] is like, ‘OK, we’re going to pay homage to DJ Jazzy Jeff but we’re not going to make you a DJ,'” Jones added. “It just was a great nod to of the original DJ Jazzy Jeff but not necessarily the character.”

That nod is best captured in how Cooper uses music to help articulate Jazz’s identity. There’s the musical cues from the first episode but there’s also the fourth (and latest) episode, “Canvas”, where we learn Jazz runs his uncle’s record shop. In the episode, we see him highlight records from Fuse ODG, Aya Nakamura, and Burna Boy as Hilary Banks (Coco Jones) helps Jazz create an Instagram account for the shop. We also see him gift rapper Buddy (who plays himself as a surprise cameo) a vinyl of English rock band Demon Fuzz’s Afreaka!, after he runs into the shop asking for “something that sounds like the hungry caterpillar ate 20 tabs of acid with a side of shrimp and grits.”
Jones shared that there were other musical cues that were initially in the script for previous episodes but didn’t make the final cut, including a scene where Jazz recites DOOM’s Madvillainy cut “Accordion.”
“Honestly, we wanted to get that on the show. I guess it didn’t get cleared because actually, at first, he had me rap it from the beginning,” Jones said. “But then he was like, ‘Ah, but let’s do a couple takes just in case they don’t clear it. You’re just like bobbing your head to whatever.'”

#4. He just left the country for the first time

Imagine being almost 30 and only just leaving the country for the very first time. Well, that’s what Jones just did. He celebrated his 28th birthday in Cancun, and it was the best trip. He could not have asked for a better way to celebrate not only his birthday but his first international trip, too.

#5. He is a college graduate

We mentioned before that he left college and went right to work in Hollywood, and it didn’t take him long. One of the good things about his career after college is that he didn’t have to go far to find it. He attended college at the University of Southern California (USC). He was already in SoCal when it was time for him to move to Los Angeles, so the change was not a massive one.

#6. To him, his faith and his mom are the most important

While we know very little about his family, we do know that his mom raised him – and that she did it alone. He once sent her a beautiful message that thanked her for being both a wonderful mother and father to him, and we can tell that she did a killer job raising her son.
One thing we love about this actor so much is that he is not afraid to speak about his faith and how important it is to him. His Instagram biography lists Proverbs 3: 5-6, which is one of the most well-known verses in the Bible. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths,” is the verse.
