Jazzmeia Horn Live At Jazz Port Townsend

Making her Pacific Northwest debut, Jazzmeia Horn thrilled a near-capacity crowd in McCurdy Pavilion at Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend in late July. Backed by an all-star group including saxophonist Tim Warfield, pianist Taylor Eigsti, Harish Rhavan on bass and Marcus Baylor on drums, the multi-award winning young singer presented songs ranging from Cole Porter to a Betty Carter classic and two songs of her own.  Still in her twenties, Jazzmeia Horn has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including international competitions named for Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter and Thelonious Monk.  Her first album, "Social Call" was issued last year.","_id":"0000017a-8d21-d4f4-a97b-af2b23bf0000","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">">","_id":"0000017a-8d21-d4f4-a97b-af2b23bf0000","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">
