JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring King Solomon Hicks and Alita Moses
Grammy nominated JC Hopkins and his Biggish Band have been tearing up the NYC jazz scene for over a decade. They have backed such great vocalists as Norah Jones and Elvis Costello. Their new album, “MEET ME AT MINTON’S” showcases outstanding performances by legendary vocalists JON HENDRICKS, ANDY BEY plus rising stars BRIANNA THOMAS, JAZZMEIA HORN, ALICIA OLATUJA, KING SOLOMON HICKS, CHARLES TURNER and QUEEN ESTHER- backed by an electrifying 12 piece band that “features some of New York’s finest musicians”- NY TIMES.
King Solomon Hicks is the real deal. He has performed with Cotton Club Orchestra since he was thirteen years old and now is a mainstay with the JC Hopkins Biggish and featured on the newly release album entitled “Meet Me at Minton’s” as lead guitarist and vocalist.
Alita Moses was classically trained since childhood in the prestige of her musical pedigree. She glides through the cherished tunes of Billie Holiday to land gracefully into George Gershwin or Prince. Alita Moses flourished through conservatory training in jazz vocals to emerge as a singular talent, a lady of impeccable charm.
