Jazzmeia Horn
In the last 40 years few vocalist have emerged whom seemed poised to leave an undeniable mark in the world of jazz. Now Jazzmeia Horn, seems able to do just that. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, and currently enrolled in the New School Jazz program, led by Martin Mueller, Ms. Horn's ability to turn a musical phrase from words to feeling is reminiscent of the late, and undeniably great Sarah Vaughn, while owning a voice that is truly her own.

Where most vocalist copy and mimic, Jazzmeia Horn pays tribute, not only in quality of sound, but through that own originally unique force that makes the greatest singers beacons of light in a drab world of dull vocalist. “I've always wanted to sing." Says Ms. Horn. “Since I was young, I wanted to learn every song, remember every line, and then find a way to craft them into my statements, to find a way to make them me."

At the tender age of 20, Jazz Horn seems well on her way. Having played and performed with such jazz heavy hitters as Jazz at Lincoln Center Alumni Ali Jackson and Vincent Gardner, and NEA Jazz Master Jon Hendricks, Ms. Horn has taken learning and exploring the musical form of jazz as serious as can be. While managing a full course load at the New School, Jazz Horn, manages to study, practice and perfect her musical skills all while living the jazz musicians dream—that of being a working jazz musician in New York.

Come out and see for yourself why Jazz Horn is considered the singer to watch on the Jazz Scene. On November 17, 2011 she will be performing at the One and One Bar in NYC at 7pm located at 76 East 1st Street and 1st Avenue. On November 18, 2011 she will be performing at The Moldy Fig in (3) sets at 178 Stanton Street in Manhattan (Call Club for exact Times). On Saturday, November 19, 2011 Ms. Horn will be playing (2) sets at Bill's Place at 148 West 1334d Street (between Lenox and 7th Avenue) in Manhattan (Call club for exact times.)

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!
