Jazzmeia Horn

This introductory quote reflects a young jazz singer, whose discipline in learning her craft embodies the order necessary to become a songstress. Coupled with the good manners to respect the historical legacy of America’s classical music - jazz. To hear her voice, is to hear a young woman’s journey into the past - and her present - of jazz vocalists, whose voices embodied the order and good manners of respecting the vocabulary of the song, as well as the interpretation of song. Thus, it is with Jazz Horn, a singer who approaches a song with moral and reasonable certitude which lies within her voice.

Read "This Bitter Earth" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
