Album Notes
Her Voice Is Pure And Dexterous...Peggy Guggenheim Collection (Word Press)
All in all it has to be said: the woman can really sing. -Wayne Goins (Living Blues Magazine)

4 Octave International Classic BJ&G Vocalist famous for her profound contralto voice, strong yet smooth and crystal clear, a voice that calls to mind the sultriness and class of Cassandra and Nancy Wilson, the sassiness of Eartha Kitt, the subtleness of Shirley Horn, and even, when necessary, the big vibrato of Bessie Smith, Etta James and Mahalia Jackson, all wrapped up into one phenomenally talented woman...International Blues, Jazz, Gospel recording artist and midday radio host to BlackBerryJazz Radio, Habaka Kfj.

Born in the Music City, Nashville, TN, Habaka KFJ comes from a lineage of musicians and entertainers. Her grandfather Jerry Jackson was a pianist and promoter, her mother Mary Ann Jackson, an international dancer & jazz vocalist, and her father Melvin Jackson, Legendary saxophonist for more than 20yrs with none other than the King of the Blues, B.B. King. Extending the family lineage, this international recording artist, and mentor, Habaka KFJ, has gone on to perform in the most prominent concert venues, captivating audiences throughout Europe and America in some of the most prestigious Clubs, Festivals, Theaters, and Cathedrals in the world and even standing and being seated before Nobility.

Habaka's first recording with the group IZ Army released the LP entitled "The Bomb" under AMP Records. Gospel music, also a passion of hers, led her to record her next LP “Eternal Life" under Exodus Records, as lead singer for the group, Burning Bush. Habaka, being one of the most sought after jazz, gospel, and blues voices of today, has collaborated on several projects and recordings and, of course, has also been the featured artist on many of these projects. Habaka's first ever Holiday Classic CD: "Back in the city...It's Christmas", and "I Will Wait For You" were released under Tate Music Group and, most recently, the Jazz inspired "Just Say I Love Him".

In December 2016 Habaka will release her most personal and soulfully inspired album produced by Habaka entitled "Heritage Blue" under Husky Tone Records featuring amazingly outstanding musicians that includes a stellar performance by James Boogaloo Boldin (former bandleader on trumpet for B.B. King), Eric Demmer on sax (formerly with Gatemouth Brown), and James Lamar Boulet on trumpet. This phenomenal recording is a tour de force collection of Blues and Jazz standards, and originals rearranged "Habaka Style" to bring these age-old classics of yesterday into the 21st century. On this brilliant new release coming December 2016, Habaka takes her listeners on a journey from Blues to Jazz, and Soul to Funk from pleasure to pain and everywhere in between.

This is Habaka stepping into her inheritance, coming from such a rich family legacy, and by vowing to continue to extend that legacy, she is considered to be one of the last authentic Blues, Jazz voices in her genre today...and why not? After all, it's her DNA!
