Jazzmeia’s 2017 album “A Social Call,” which earned her a GRAMMY Award nomination in 2018, was a bold, political statement – a call for change. Her new album “Love and Liberation,” scheduled for release on August 23 via Concord Jazz, is a call to action, starting with the self. Since her first release, she’s been busy on the road, honing her vocal skills to a finely tuned level, writing songs of personal relevance and social message, and perfecting a fearless approach to improvisation and performance in general. The convergence of this drive and development has resulted in what is sure to be hailed as one of the most courageous recordings of 2019—Love and Liberation—filled with songs, many of them original, of daring musicality, emotional power, and messages of immediate relevancy. Horn chose the title she did for her second album because, “Love and Liberation is a concept and mantra that I use consistently in my everyday life. For me the two go hand in hand and they both describe where I am in my life and career right now. An act of love is an act of liberation, and choosing to liberate—oneself or another—is an act of love.”
