The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra was formed in 2002 and was designed to celebrate and fortify the American Jazz portfolio while providing infrastructure for developing the New Orleans Jazz Industry. Led by GRAMMY® Award-Winner Adonis Rose, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra band has an ever-increasing repertoire that exemplifies the influence of Jazz as the grandfather of all modern American music.
3x GRAMMY® Award Nominated Jazz Vocalist JAZZMEIA HORN, who is the Winner of both the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition, joins the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra in their return to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club.
Horn's most recent GRAMMY® Award Nomination was in 2021 for her album Dear Love. Garnering praise from critics and fans alike Dear Love is a recording that brims with the combination of her assured delivery and spoken world segments, deft arrangements, and fiery musical ideas. In 2018, Jazzmeia Horn was Nominated for a GRAMMY® Award ("Best Jazz Vocal Album") for her album A Social Call. Horn was Nominated for another GRAMMY® Award ("Best Jazz Vocal Album") in 2020 for her album Love & Liberation.
