JAZMIN GHENT
WEBSITE

Jazmin Ghent is an international 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". She was nominated for 2019 Smooth Jazz Network's Best Artist of the Year and was voted 2017's Best New Smooth Jazz Artist. 

Jazmin is also an accomplished music educator. She taught music to students in grades K-5 for 5 years. In 2020 Jazmin was invited by the US Embassy in Haiti to spend 7 days presenting music workshops to adults and children. She worked with musicians demonstrating the origin of jazz from standards to jazz of today. The week culminated with Jazmin headlining the International Jazz Festival in Port Au Prince, Haiti. She has also presented workshops to young musicians in Syracuse, New York, Long Island, New York and Elmira, New York. 

From the entertainment perspective, Jazmin has 6 top 5 Billboard singles: Kickin It Up: Stride: Amends: Work Wit It: Heat: and Compared to What. Her most successful hit to date is Kickin It Up which was #1 on Billboard Smooth Jazz Charts (June 2, 2021). Stride, Amends, Heat and Compared to What remained on Billboard Smooth Jazz Airplay Charts for 20+ weeks and was played in rotation by most smooth jazz stations including Sirius XM Watercolors Channel for 7+ months. Jazmin has performed at various major festivals and venues throughout the country, in Europe and recently on the 2019 Dave Koz Cruise to Australia. 

According to Art Good of Catalina Island's Jazz Trax 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. She is currently a PhD student at the University of South Florida. Her latest CD, “Forever...Jaz" was released January 2021.

Euge Groove
WATCH

WEBSITE
A graduate of Miami’s School Of Music, Euge launched his professional career in Miami in the mid-80s, playing in salsa bands, Top 40 club bands and doing the occasional high-profile session date like Expose’s “Seasons Change,” a #1 Billboard AC hit. In 1987 he moved to L.A., wrote a track for Richard Elliot’s The Power of Suggestion and Elliot recommended Euge to take over his spot in Tower of Power. Euge toured with TOP for four years, including a year backing Huey Lewis & The News. He went on to record, tour or perform with the likes of Joe Cocker, The Eurythmics, The Gap Band, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville and Richard Marx (that’s Euge’s horn on “Keep Coming Back,” a #1 AC hit duet he recorded with Luther Vandross). In 1999, Euge started recording his own material, dubbing himself Euge Groove, and posting his music on the now-defunct MP3.com website; downloading started almost immediately and Euge was soon topping the MP3.com Jazz chart. He signed soon thereafter with Warner Bros.




Euge Groove has garnered a devout following with his irresistible mix of danceable grooves, mind-bending hooks, R&B-infused melodies, and inspired solos. Having collaborated with everyone from Tina Turner Elton John and Bonnie Raitt to Tower of Power and Aaron Neville, Euge Groove is never short on inspiration. 


Through the years, Euge’s love of Jazz, R&B, Gospel, and Blues have all come together to inform his personalized sound.


Euge Groove further asserts himself as a vital force in the continuum of Contemporary Jazz and promises he has no intentions other than to Groove On!

WEBSITE
WATCH

Tim Smith, bass


Roddy Smith, guitar


Tim Gordon, saxophone and flute


Mark Stallings, keyboards


Donnie Marshall, drums


Shelly Ruffin, guest vocalist



If the name Smith and the city of Charlotte ring a bell musically, it is because the Smith legacy started there in 1950 when guitarist Arthur Smith, and his two brothers, Ralph and Sonny, became the musical face of the brand new television station, WBTV. Arthur became one of the most innovative and imitated guitarists in the world, eventually penning two of the largest selling instrumentals of all time, Guitar Boogie and Dueling Banjos. “Brother” Ralph became a household fixture as part of the group, and as one of the faces of Bost Bread. He was a beloved entertainer and comedian, and the father of Tim and Roddy, both destined to follow in the very large Smith footsteps.


Mr. Groove started in 1986 under the name Side 1. It started as a duo with bassist Tim Smith and guitarist and brother Roddy Smith. Armed with the latest in technology, they created background tracks and sequences and began playing at venues all around the Carolinas. A chance meeting with vocalist Darryl Johnson led to the formation of a very powerful and popular trio. In addition to performing live, all three members were in-demand studio musicians which led to growing from the trio to a six piece band including Donnie Marshall on drums, Mark Stallings on keyboards, and Tim Gordon on sax. There were many other musicians who performed along with the band including drummer Tony Creasman, saxophonist John Alexander, keyboardist David Zeltner, and others. With the Smith brothers move to Nashville, they continued to record with some of the foremost musicians in the world, including drummer Keith Carlock (Steely Dan), percussionist Lenny Castro (Toto, John Mayer), saxophonists Bill Evans (Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra), Mark Douthit (Michael McDonald, Larry Carlton), and Ed Calle (Grammy winner, Arturo Sandoval), pianists Martin Bejerano (Roy Haynes) Jim Beard (Steely Dan, Michael Brecker), and Sony Latin vocalist supreme Roxana Amed, among others. The current Mr. Groove project title “Meadow Park” includes of the past and current members of the group, and is a stunning collection of melodies, grooves, and some amazing improvisation.

Julian Vaughn
WATCH
A Dynamic-lead bass player from Kansas City, bassist Julian Vaughn has made an international name for himself since 2010 as a bassist in the jazz genre. Although the bass is often associated with funk, Vaughn likes to play with more of a finesse style as well as some funk. 

Julian Vaughn has toured all over the U.S. playing at some of the largest jazz festivals and abroad in places like Dubai, Nairobi, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Lagos Nigeria, and Germany.

Vaughn has recorded 6 albums thus far with 6 billboard #1 hits. In 2020 Vaughn was named the #2 Billboard artist of the year with 2 singles in the top 20 for the top 100 billboard songs of the year. As Vaughn's recording catalog continues to grow he still wants to continue to redefine the lead bassist role.

Award-winning pianist who has traveled six continents, and brings a fusion of Contemporary Smooth Jazz with touches of Funk, and Brazilian-Caribbean flavors.

BOB BALDWIN
WEBSITE

Bob Baldwin is an American Pianist/Composer/Arranger/Radio Host/Inventor. The Mt. Vernon, NY native has recorded on six of the seven inhabitable continents, and while Antarctica is not on his recording bucket list, his short international list, including Dubai, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, UK, Canada, is quite impressive. "Whether it's a massive festival crowd of 30,000 or an intimate restaurant audience of less than 60, I refuse to rob my audience of great music, top-notch effort and a good personal experience", says Baldwin.


He’s been coined by industry peers as the “Ray Charles of Contemporary Jazz”, having owned all but seven of his 34 solo recordings. He claims that ownership has helped to sustain him throughout the current pandemic era.


His Radio program, NewUrbanJazz, established in 2008, celebrated its’ 700th consecutive weekly radio program on February 28, 2022.


The pianist's personal goal is to release a 12-song project per year, and since 1988, he has released over 34 projects, of which 27 are owned by his company, City Sketches Records (distributed by The Orchard/Sony Music). Discs #35 and 36 are in the works.


His current 2021 release, "The UrbanSmooth Suite" was a vocal extravaganza with various vocalists Monica Mason, Regina Troupe, Toni Redd and others as well as Earth, Wind and Fire original Ralph Johnson on drum on the uptempo "Dance 3000”.


What's next? Well...funny you should ask. Bob Baldwin is re-writing and updating his book, “You Better Ask Somebody”, and will go in a little deeper on subjects like music streaming and the lowdown on Croton Jazz.

Award-winning pianist who has traveled six continents, and brings a fusion of Contemporary Smooth Jazz with touches of Funk, and Brazilian-Caribbean flavors.

Bob Baldwin is an American Pianist/Composer/Arranger/Radio Host/Inventor. The Mt. Vernon, NY native has recorded on six of the seven inhabitable continents, and while Antarctica is not on his recording bucket list, his short international list, including Dubai, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, UK, Canada, is quite impressive. "Whether it's a massive festival crowd of 30,000 or an intimate restaurant audience of less than 60, I refuse to rob my audience of great music, top-notch effort and a good personal experience", says Baldwin.


He’s been coined by industry peers as the “Ray Charles of Contemporary Jazz”, having owned all but seven of his 34 solo recordings. He claims that ownership has helped to sustain him throughout the current pandemic era.


His Radio program, NewUrbanJazz, established in 2008, celebrated its’ 700th consecutive weekly radio program on February 28, 2022.


The pianist's personal goal is to release a 12-song project per year, and since 1988, he has released over 34 projects, of which 27 are owned by his company, City Sketches Records (distributed by The Orchard/Sony Music). Discs #35 and 36 are in the works.


His current 2021 release, "The UrbanSmooth Suite" was a vocal extravaganza with various vocalists Monica Mason, Regina Troupe, Toni Redd and others as well as Earth, Wind and Fire original Ralph Johnson on drum on the uptempo "Dance 3000”.


What's next? Well...funny you should ask. Bob Baldwin is re-writing and updating his book, “You Better Ask Somebody”, and will go in a little deeper on subjects like music streaming and the lowdown on Croton Jazz.
