Riding a wave of excitement after the release of her debut album A Social Call from last year, Jazzmeia Horn sold out her Tuesday night Earshot Jazz Festival performance. Our studio audience was packed to catch her incredible talent and impressive band up close, and we're honored to share that studio session with you.
Musically, Horn was raised in a Baptist church choir. She was put here by the Creator to make music, Horn told us, and it's hard to argue that point. Her skills as a singer transcend standard jazz vocalists, Horn uses her voice as an instrumentalist would. Only she's able to mimic a symphony with her impressive pipes, wailing like a sax or popping and cracking like a drummer.
Musicians: Jazzmeia Horn - vocals Julius Rodriguez - piano Endea Owens - bass Henry Conerway III - drums
Audio: John Kessler
