“Maestro J” is one of the most celebrated contemporary jazz violinists of his era. His restless curiosity, passion, energy and multi-faceted musical interests have earned him the title of
"The Blazin' Violinist".
Racine "Maestro J" is the founder and executive director of the Blazin’ Strings Academy - a non profit afterschool program for underserved youth in Louisville, KY, giving them an opportunity to learn a string instrument in a safe environment, paired with academic tutoring and social emotional building.

He has taught at the Western Louisville Talent Education Center, AMPED, and has offered many free master classes to the youth. Most recently, Racine was selected as one of 50 BME Community Fellows across the country. BME (Black Male Engagement) is an award-winning network of community-builders that recognizes black men who have made positive contributions to society and inspired us to be better together.
