Ben Williams.

Henry Conerway III.

It's getting hot in here.

My name is Jazzmeia Horn.

I'm from Dallas, Texas.

I'll be playing a lot of the

tunes from my debut album,

"A Social Call," which is on

Prestige Records.

♪ West of the moon, dear

I started singing in the choir

when I was 3 years old.

You know, being a preacher's

kid, you know, so to speak,

you kind of have to do what they

tell you to do.

But then I fell in love with it.

It's not like it's something

that I don't like to do.

♪ Moon

♪ East of the sun

♪ West of the moon

♪ We'll build a dream house

of love, dear ♪

The first time I heard

Sarah Vaughan, I was probably

like 14 or 15.

You know, I would listen to

vocalists and be like, "Oh,

that's cute.

That's cool."

But then when I heard Sarah, I

was like, "Okay, who are you?

Because I need to check you out

and study you and learn about

what you're doing because you

are showing me that I can do

what I want to do with my gift."

You know, when you're

discovering who you are as an

artist, that's hard to do.

But if you see somebody who you

can replicate just for a little

bit, until you can stand on your

own two feet, that's what

Sarah Vaughan did for me.

We're gonna play a ballad for

you, and we hope you don't go to

sleep, but it has a message, so,

you know, just stick with us,

okay?

All right.

One, two, three, four.

[ Chuckles ]

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

You kind of got to keep -- You

know, I have children, so you

got to keep the -- keep the

youth involved.

We call this music jazz music,

and it came about, you know,

from people after the...coming

over here from the Caribbeans,

coming from Africa, coming from

all different places, and they

brought this music to

New Orleans with them.

And so some of the new

generation are not as happy or

as successful listening to the

music as I feel and we feel that

they should be.

So, sometimes you just got to

freestyle over something like

this to keep them involved,

you know?

And you got to hear it so you

can go back to them and say,

"Oh, I like what she did."

And then we come together, old

school and new school.
