RHYTHM and Blues singer Monica and Barbadian saxophonist Arturo Tappin will play the January 24-26 Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival.

A statement from promoters TurnKey Promotions said the 2013 event will see "more jazz back into it".

The headliners named so far — John Legend, Michael Bolton and Mary J Blige — are soul/pop artistes.

Monica was among the flood of teen soul singers who sprung up in the United States during the early 1990s. One of her early hits was Just One of Those Days, from the album Miss Thang.

Tappin also came to prominence in the 1990s, making a name on the growing Caribbean jazz festival circuit. He has toured and recorded with big-name performers like Roberta Flack.
