Jasmine

by Jasmine

JASMINE was formed in 1978 by CAROL SCHMIDT and MICHELE ISAM. Both met while attending Webster College Music Department where Carol and Michele shared much in musical tastes and aspirations. They seemed especially compatible since Carol wrote, played piano and sang while Michele played sax, percussion and sang. Together they would arrange Carol's originals and other artists' music they loved. Their choices were eclectic as they drew upon all of their musical influences together and individually. Pop. Rock, soul, jazz and classical styles were all fair game for their club and concert set lists. No group, male or female at the time, had the sound or appeal they did. This set them apart and JASMINE caught on locally and lines formed at the clubs to see them. Their concerts and club gigs tended to be events and Carol and Michele engaged their fans with fun as well as great music. In 1986 the duo became a trio with the addition of singer/instrumentalist, LYDIA RUFFIN. LYDIA added a strong

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This release also includes five songs from a 'live' sold out performance at the famous Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis. This is truly a representation of what you could expect from a 'Jasmine' concert in the 80's and 90's. This CD is a gift to the fans who were clamoring for Carol and Michele to release their music on disc for the first time. The CD contains both LPS' Jasmine recorded from 1980-1986.

"...a hard act to follow...pianist Carol Schmidt and saxophonist Michele Isam...both have a flair for crisp, staccato harmonies... Truly refreshing, they deserved the vigorous applause that brought them back for an encore." —Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

"With rhythm rather than blood racing through their veins, Miss Schmidt and Miss Isam raised the roof...exploding with thrilling musical arrangements..." —William D. Kerns, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

"They exhibit excellent taste in the material they use. Often described as doing " a little of everything," they actually do the best of a few....they do it all well." —Jim Wolff, St. Louis Music News

"Of the originals (on their premier album)... it is Schmidt's poetry...that will garner the most attention...Her images are thought provoking, and she provides insight into the human experience...the sound is perfect." —Steve Pick, The Riverfront Times
