Grammy Award nominated vocalist Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself, capturing her very essence. Since winning the Thelonious Monk Competition in 2015, Jazzmeia’s star has continued to rise, along with her reputation as an artist with an assured maturity and a vocal confidence far beyond her years. JazzTimes exclaims that Jazzmeia’s “vivacity, imagination, gutsiness and sociopolitical savvy echo the likes of Carter and Abbey Lincoln. Simply put, she is as exciting a discovery as Cécile McLorin Salvant or Gregory Porter.” Her debut album, A Social Call, was released on Concord’s Prestige label to overwhelming acclaim from critics and fans alike, earning Jazzmeia her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Great story-telling, an inspired message, fluid vocals, scat-singing, and spirited group performances – A Social Call features all one would hope to hear from a veteran vocalist of longstanding reputation. As such, the album serves as a clarion call, proudly announcing the arrival of a young, confident musical talent with a bright future ahead of her, blessed with a name that carries its own destiny. Jazzmeia looks forward to her sophomore release in early summer 2019.


"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."

"Jazzmeia Horn harbors both astounding technique and an acute artistic vision…Horn has a thrilling presence with a musical sensibility that strikes a deft balance between mid-century jazz and contemporary neo-soul."

"Not only a vocalist, but a musician with big ears, and wisdom beyond her years."

Bistro All-Stars

featuring Tia Fuller, Sean Jones, Peter Martin, and Warren Wolf

We’re reuniting one of the most exciting groups we’ve ever assembled! Saxophonist Tia Fuller is a veteran of the bands of Beyoncé and Esperanza Spalding, in addition to multiple albums as a leader herself. Perhaps no artist has been heard more frequently on the Jazz St. Louis stage in the last decade than trumpeter Sean Jones, who celebrated his bond with St. Louis audiences in releasing 2017’s Live From Jazz at the Bistro. Pianist Peter Martin is no stranger to his hometown audience, or audiences worldwide for that matter, traveling the globe with his own trio, as well as serving as musical director for multi-Grammy award winning vocalist Dianne Reeves. Vibraphonist Warren Wolf is following in the footsteps of vibes masters Bobby Hutcherson and Stefon Harris, taking over their spot in the SFJazz Collective, while also establishing himself as a leader with his heralded band The Wolfpack. Four Jazz St. Louis favorites on one stage for an experience you’ll only see and hear in St. Louis.
