Possessing a luminous gift that the late great Jon Hendricks called “one of the best voices I’ve heard in over 40 years,” Dallas native Jazzmeia Horn is soaring into the jazz firmament, moving from triumph to triumph, including first place at the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and top honors at the star-making 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition. Her 2017 debut A Social Call was nominated for a GRAMMY and voted the best jazz vocal debut in the 2017 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. Drawing on the masters who came before her, Horn is rapidly defining herself with a glorious sound, smart arrangements and growing confidence as a bandleader. This June 2019 performance filmed during the 37th San Francisco Jazz Festival features her stellar trio and music from her sophomore release (and Concord Records debut) Love & Liberation.
