“Horn is among the most exciting young vocalists in jazz, with a proud traditionalism that keeps her tightly linked to the sound of classic figures like Nancy Wilson and Betty Carter, but a vivacity of spirit and conviction that places her firmly in the present.”
— The New York Times
Grammy-nominated jazz artist Jazzmeia Horn was born in Dallas, TX and attended Booker T Washington High School, later performing her way through attending The New School in New York. She is the winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition and a recipient of the NAACP Image Award for her 2019 album “Love and Liberation.” Horn founded a label to release her last album, where she also contributed as a musical director.
Emmy-nominated trumpeter and singer Benny Benack III has proven to be that rarest of talents: not only a fiery trumpet player in the vein of Kenny Dorham and Freddie Hubbard, but also a singer with a sly, mature, naturally expressive delivery in the post-Sinatra mold, performing standards and his own astute songs with a thrilling sense of showmanship. His superb intonation and bracing virtuosity enable him to handle astounding feats of originally composed vocalese (complex solos with written lyrics). On top of it all, he’s a highly capable pianist as well!
"My favorite singer…." - Tony Bennett
