Live Music: JAZZMEIA HORN | An Emerging Jazz Icon


by: Chinita Tate-Burroughs

As a part of the Atlanta Jazz Festival’s new Emerging Jazz icons series, Jazzmeia Horn graced the city of Atlanta with a stellar performance at the Rich Theatre at the Woodruff Performing Arts Center.

The mainstream music world was formally introduced to this artist with her brilliant performance of “Moanin” this past January at the 60th Grammys. Well known on the NY music scene already,  she is a 2015 winner of the Thelonius Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition.

As a photographer who loves to shoot live music, I was honored to photograph this rising star. In this particular series of images, it was important to me to visually capture some of the free flowing expressions of music and art that Jazzmeia Horn so naturally used to captivate her audience.
