ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born into a family of academics in Johnstown, Pennsylvania (affectionately referred to as "Bumf--k, PA"), Jazmín Sky was exposed mainly to classical music as a child. Jealous of her older brother's piano lessons, she begged her mother to let her play an instrument and thus began studying the violin at age 6. In 5th grade she picked up the flute and joined the school chorus, where she was forced to sing such drivel as To All the Girls I've Loved Before as well as the insufferable You Light Up My Life.

Jazmín's destiny as a typical middle-class hick-town white girl thus appeared inevitable (as further evidenced by her inexplicable fondness for Farrah Fawcett hair). That is, until she heard her first taste of Prince on a friend's stereo (When Doves Cry, Erotic City). Something immediately stirred within Jazmin's malnourished musical soul, and the experience sparked what would become a life-long love affair with funk and R&B music. Jazmín's Olivia Newton John albums and her soundtrack to Cats quickly found themselves relegated to the dust bin, to be replaced by the likes of James Brown, The Time, Run DMC, Angela Winbush, and of course, Prince.

Following her escape from Johnstown, Jazmín Sky has graced some of the world's most exciting cities with her soulful 3-octave voice. She's lived in Montreal, Madrid, Paris, Rome, and NYC and speaks fluent French, Spanish, Italian and even some Portuguese in addition to her native English. (Suffice it to say, she can fairly be characterized as "language geek" in addition to "soul diva".) She has participated in a variety of live and recording projects in both Europe and North America, including a collaboration with Grammy-award winning producer Narada Michael Walden.

As a songwriter, Jazmín's music reflects her various influences: old-school R&B and funk, certainly, but also traditional and acid jazz, blues, salsa, hip-hop, gospel and neo-soul. Besides the aforementioned R&B legends, other musical role models include Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway, and Aretha Franklin as well as more recent artists like Erykah Badu, Rachelle Ferrell, D'Angelo, Maxwell and Me'shell N'dgeocello.

Upon moving to the San Francisco Bay Area to attend graduate school, Jazmín paid her dues gigging locally for several years before embarking on her first full-length original recording project in 2002. Her resulting debut album -- released in early 2005 by Oakland indie label FunkFace Music -- is absolutely fabulous and you should buy it immediately if you haven't already done so.

Jazmin is going places
This cd was worth everything I paid for it. If you're a lover of vocal jazz/r&b or just good music in general, this cd is definately worth a listen.

the album....not really sure what to think.i've listened to the album a couple times. awesome musicians and great production however the overall project diddnt sound unique.Ms.skys vocal preformance was good but again not unique to me. hoping to check out a show to see her live preformance.

very classy
Jazmin obviosly cares about soul music listening to her new album.Some great funky tracks plus classy ballads enhanced by the ladies own flute and violin playing.My favourites Are U the 1 and Downtown,a solid album throughout.

A fantastic artist
Well worth the wait (I got the wrong CD at first)! This album is a "must have". Jazmin has a lovely voice and excellent singing technique. She doesn't exaggerate but is always tasteful - also compared to singers like Mariah Carey. The songs (mostly written and composed by J) stand out, too. This album deserves to be a success worldwide (I myself am from Scandinavia). Very classy!

This girl is off the chains!!! My new favorite artist! Erykah Badu, move over.
Gorgeous, sensual voice with amazing range, power and expressiveness. This girl is a force to be reckoned with - she can sing her a-- off, speaks fluent sexy French and Spanish, plays 2 instruments, and her songs are off the hook. Best album I've heard in a long time.
