Jacqueline Hopkins

Ever since she was a little girl, Jacqueline Hopkins has been writing lyrics and composing music. In 2001, she decided to turn her passion into a profession. Her band is full of jazz legends: Flutist Elise Wood, leader of the all-stars that comprise the John Hicks Legacy Band; Bassist Hilliard “Hill” Greene, musical director for Jimmy Scott and the Jazz Expressions; Trumpet Player Antoine Drye, who has worked with artists ranging from Ellis Marsalis and Brand New Heavies, to Wilson Picket and Daniel Lewis, to name just a few. Drummer Caroline Taylor, who previously lived and worked in England, has performed her original composition for Queen Elizabeth II with the Caroline Taylor Quintet. She has also performed with the legendary Alan Holdsworth. Saxophonist Grant Langford was a touring member of the Count Basie Orchestra. These great musicians played Jacqueline's music with fire!
