Alexandra Jackson is a new singer and songwriter from Atlanta. A classically trained pianist, as a child her household was filled with the music of Miles Davis, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Michael Jackson, as well as that of Johnny Hartman, Luciano Pavarotti, and Antonio Carlos Jobim. The youngest daughter of Atlanta’s first African-American mayor, the late Maynard Holbrook Jackson, Jr., and businesswoman and NPR personality Valerie Richardson Jackson. [1] Her grand aunt was Mattiwilda Dobbs, the African American coloratura soprano who was one of the first black singers to enjoy a major international career in opera. Alexandra studied Jazz at the University of Miami, where she was exposed to a wealth of music, including Brazilian Jazz and MPB -- performing with Latin bands and Brazilian ensembles. [2] After finishing college, Alexandra moved to Los Angeles, where she spent time as a working musician. She then returned to Atlanta to begin performing in Jazz festivals in both the U.S. and in Europe.

As such, different idioms of Brazilian music come to life in Ms. Jackson’s contemporary delivery of seventeen songs on Legacy & Alchemy -- each with an in-depth story as the backdrop -- which in essence relaunches the rich music legacy of the country as a contemporary force.[3]
