Jazzmeia Horn is turning heads. The New York Times described her as “the most talked-about jazz vocalist to emerge since Cécile McLorin Salvant,” and Jazztimes mused that she is “heir to the legacy of Betty Carter.” Horn’s assured delivery, nimble scatting, and improvisational prowess echo and expand upon another jazz legend, Sarah Vaughan, whom Horn considers a leading influence. Spoleto Festival USA is proud to present this rising talent—the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition winner and a 2018 Grammy Award nominee—leading her new septet in an unforgettable evening of vocal fireworks.
