What Is in a Name? For This Talented Jazz Vocalist, A Lot More Than You May Think
Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself. For the young winner of the Thelonius Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition (2015) and Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition (2013), the name captures her very essence and alludes to the singer’s unique talents.
