At age 28, vocalist Jazzmeia Horn boasts some pretty impressive credentials, including winning the 2013 Sarah Vaughan and 2015 Thelonious Monk jazz competitions. She sings standards with a powerful, earthy tone that draws heavily on the blues. She sounds somewhere between Vaughan and the great scatter Anita O’Day.
Her vocals will be a great match for the Kennedy Center’s cavernous Studio K. Two separate sets at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.
Please note that the 7:30 set is sold out.
