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!”
