PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Dec. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features GRAMMY® Award-Winning NEW ORLEANS JAZZ ORCHESTRA with 3x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Jazz Vocalist JAZZMEIA HORN on Friday January 20 at 7 & 9:30 P.M. The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, led by GRAMMY® Award-Winning Drummer & Composer ADONIS ROSE, takes the sonic power and stylistic versatility of a big band, adds a New Orleans emphasis on groove and accessibility, and applies it to an unusually expansive repertoire of originals, Jazz staples, New Orleans classics, as well as Pop, Rock, R&B, and Soul hits.
The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra was formed in 2002 and was designed to celebrate and fortify the American Jazz portfolio while providing infrastructure for developing the New Orleans Jazz Industry. Led by GRAMMY® Award-Winner Adonis Rose, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra band has an ever-increasing repertoire that exemplifies the influence of Jazz as the grandfather of all modern American music.
3x GRAMMY® Award Nominated Jazz Vocalist JAZZMEIA HORN, who is the Winner of both the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition, joins the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra in their return to Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club.
“The most talked-about jazz vocalist to emerge since Cécile McLorin Salvant and Gregory Porter both became stars…”
— NEW YORK TIMES
“Horn has a thrilling presence with a musical sensibility that strikes a deft balance between mid-century jazz and contemporary neo-soul.”
— DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE
“Without a doubt among the jazz world’s most exciting young vocalists…”
Horn’s most recent GRAMMY® Award Nomination was in 2021 for her album Dear Love. Garnering praise from critics and fans alike Dear Love is a recording that brims with the combination of her assured delivery and spoken world segments, deft arrangements, and fiery musical ideas. In 2018, Jazzmeia Horn was Nominated for a GRAMMY® Award (“Best Jazz Vocal Album”) for her album A Social Call. Horn was Nominated for another GRAMMY® Award (“Best Jazz Vocal Album”) in 2020 for her album Love & Liberation.
