All About Jazz

Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Jazzmeia Horn

There is great anticipation surrounding Jazzmeia Horn. She has already been compared to Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan, and she received compliments from Jon Hendricks and Al Jarreau. Her singing and vocalese skills are of the highest level, and on top of that she does not shy away from addressing current social issues.

On her recent album A Social Call she displays a wide array of influences, from role models such as Mary J Blige and Sister Sister Rosetta Tharpe, but also from African music and Native American cultures.

At a young age, Jazzmeia Horn won various Downbeat Student Music Awards and she twice reached first place in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. In 2015 she won the Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Vocals Competition.

Personnel: Jazzmeia Horn: vocals; Victor Gould: piano; Géraud Portal: bass; Henry Conerway III: drums.
