Jazmin Ghent joins the Savannah-Safe Jazz Festival for Spicy Jazz Saturday.
Ghent is an award-winning national smooth jazz and gospel recording artist as well as an accomplished music educator. She was awarded the prestigious 2019 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Jazz Album, “The Story of Jazz,” and was voted 2017’s Best New Smooth Jazz Artist.
Ghent taught music to students for five years and this year, she was invited by the U.S. Embassy in Haiti to spend seven days presenting music workshops to adults and children.
With four Billboard-topping singles, “Amends,” “Work Wit It,” “Heat” and “Compared To What,” the festival is thrilled to feature her this year.
Ghent has performed all over the world, and according to Art Good of Catalina Island’s JazzTrax radio and festival, “… unknown Jazmin Ghent was one of the BEST FINDS the festival has EVER uncovered. Obviously…she OUTSOLD all 30 stars of smooth jazz in the JazzTrax Store, selling more CDs than anyone. She had stage presence, a show and she could play!”
Jazmin received a bachelor’s degree from Florida State University and a Master’s Degree from Tennessee State University. According to Euge Groove, “Jazmin brings much needed real deal youth in the genre.”
