Jazmin Ghent – The Story of Jaz

This Smooth Jazz Rising Star has one of the most compelling stories of Jazz that you will ever hear. A young woman with an old soul raised by music lovers who introduced her to the legends before she could walk…Kirk Whalum, Bob James and Gerald Albright, to name a few. Ms. Ghent managed to find time and energy to learn to play the saxophone, practice and rehearse relentlessly, earning two scholarships and a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in music. This full time educator is barely in her mid 20s and already recording her third album of Contemporary Jazz!

On the heels of an extraordinary year in 2017, Jaz, as her friends and family call her, won Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year as voted by industry professionals on the Smooth Jazz Network. In addition, she played more critically acclaimed festivals and events than many artists who have been in the industry twice as long. From her upcoming album The Story of Jaz Jazmin releases the first single Heat  featuring Philippe Saisse and Kim Scott.

Jazmin has just started her gofundme campaign for her new album and needs your support.
