Little Girl Blue: A Tribute To Nina Simone + Music from her debut album “Judi Jackson Live in London”
With her tribute to Nina Simone, one of the biggest jazz voices so far, Judi Jackson proves to measure up to her reputation. She looks like “the girl next door” but this image is immediately broken by her black, soul and dark sound, a perfect combination between sweetness and power.
Judi Jackson was introduced to the world of music through the Jefferson Centre’s Music Lab in her hometown of Roanoke, Virginia. It was here she met Wynton Marsalis, and opened for Mavis Staples, which sparked her development as a jazz vocalist and performer. Before graduating from the University of Mary Washington with a BA in Musical Theatre, Judi recorded her original song, Only Love with Grammy award-winning band Snarky Puppy under the direction of friend and mentor Michael League. Judi is currently based between NYC and London, her debut EP Blame It On My Youth, written and produced by Warner Music’s George Moore received outstanding reviews from BBC Radio hosts Robert Elms and Jamie Cullum amongst many others. On the 10th June 2018 Judi recorded her debut live album Judi Jackson ‘Live In London’ set to be released in early Sept 2018.
