Charlie Parker Festival: Jazzmeia Horn, Calvin Booker

A Grammy-nominated American jazz singer in the vein of Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan, Jazzmeia Horn is one of the boldest voices in modern jazz. Her new album Dear Love is her third, but her first with Her Noble Force, a 15-piece ensemble that expands her sound and offers new challenges for her daring arrangements. She’s joined by Calvin Booker, a multi-disciplinary dancer and DJ born and raised in Brownsville, Brooklyn. An original member of the Broadway production of FELA!, he brings his unique style of tap-dancing to the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival for the first time.
