Widely-praised award-winning vocalist Jazzmeia Horn makes her debut with A Social Call, recorded with an all-star acoustic jazz lineup. Horn draws from a deep well of influences on her interpretations: she remakes standards such as West Of The Moon and I Remember You but is equally adept tackling the hard bop of Afro Blue and Moanin’ or the gospel-leaning staples Wade In The Water and Lift Every Voice And Song. The album features Horn’s readings of two songs associated with one of her biggest inspirations, Betty Carter: the title track and Tight. She also ventures into R&B on the much-covered Philly soul number People Make the World Go Round and I’m Going Down, a top 20 hit for Mary J. Blige, first done by Rose Royce in the 1970s.

INTERLUDE marks a rare focus upon largely straight-ahead jazz and a return to interpretation from an artist who has made a habit of bending genres, writing original material and bringing new sounds and new listeners to the music. Produced, Engineered & Mixed by Benedic Lamdin for Nostalgia 77 and featuring guest spots from Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter, the album repertoire choices were inspired by the music and musicians he’s featured on his award-winning UK jazz radio show over the last few years and his own crate digging tendencies, INTERLUDE avoid cliché with a fistful of less obvious jewels from the American songbook along with a couple modern surprises.
