Jazzmeia Horn - Dear Love - Empress Legacy Records

Dear Love, the brand-new project by US jazz luminary, vocalist and composer Jazzmeia Horn addresses three specific aspects of Jazzmeia’s existence, her community, her lover and herself. Dear Love is also one of the first times that a black female vocalist has written and fronted a big band album in its entirety (this having historically always been a male preoccupation) and the addition of strings elevates the album to that of a major orchestral project.
“Her singing is exuberant, her original songs reveal a sturdy intellect, and her message is nothing less than everything the title implies” NPR
“Without a doubt among the jazz world’s most exciting young vocalists… her sound is explosive and bright and rich, catnip for audiences looking for boldness that’s still traditional.” BILLBOARD
