On a rare European tour, Baltimore-born Maysa is pleased to be in Birmingham for the 30th International Jazz & Blues Festival. Maysa first appeared in the UK in the early ‘Nineties as the lead singer of the Jazzfunk band Incognito (Don’t you Worry ’bout a Thing) appearing on over nine Incognito recordings in her time with them. Releasing her own self-titled debut album in 1995, Maysa has recorded ten more solo albums since. Three of these, Metamorphosis (2008), A Woman In Love (2010), and Motions In Love (2011), have reached No. 1 in the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts.
