Habaka Kfj, American 4 octave international classic BJ&G Vocalist, born in Nashville, TN and raised in Bloomfield, CT.  Coined The Panther Of Cremona, Italy and 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 she also had the opportunity to be the midday radio host of BlackBerryJazz Radio Station and now producer of her own new TV Web Series "8 Track Mind" meet, Habaka Kay Foster Jackson.  In December 2016 Habaka released her most personal and soulfully inspired album  produced by Habaka entitled "Heritage Blue" under the Husky Tone Records label, featuring amazingly outstanding musicians that includes a stellar performance by James Boogaloo Bolden (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!
 

Each song in this project is gutsy, and heartfelt. It is a kick your shoes off, dim the lights and drop a few cubes in the brown liquor good.”

Bit By The Bug 

Anyone that has ever had a combination of Acute Bronchitis & Pneumonia know that it is not a joke, and that's what I was bitten by about a month ago.  It became so bad that I ended being hospitalized and having to undergo an outrageous amount of antibiotic treatment.  I tell you what for anyone it's no fun and especially for a professional singer.  Can you imagine the metal trauma I've been going through? Thinking all kinds of thoughts of not being able to perform again, loosing my voice with a different voice remaining as a result...and on and on and on.:-)

Well the good new's is that I was given all sorts of test and one in particular was an MRI which with that they were able to discover that I had an abnormal bronchial function probably since I was born, which never surfaced until now and would not have been able to be detected through normal xrays, like I had taken a week before which only showed that I had pneumonia.  So the rest of the good new's is that none of my organs had been damaged and that I can be cured!!!!!! So you know I was really cuttin a dance and praising the Lord on that one. :-)  

So seeing that I should be good as new in about week, I can hardly wait to get back on the stage and do what I love the most and that's sing.

Hugs Habaka
