A founding member of the chart-topping contemporary jazz group Fourplay, East was 16 years old when he got his first break and found himself on the road with Barry White. The next time the phone rang, Quincy Jones was on the line. The calls kept coming and for the last forty years, East has been churning out hit songs with artists as legendary as Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Barbra Streisand and Stevie Wonder.
His genre-crossing groove has earned him both the recognition – a Congressional Record for his contributions to the worldwide music community, for one – and the boundary-busting respect of his peers, illustrated by his current appearances on two hit records as diverse as Andrea Bocelli’s Passione and Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories.
Suffice it to say, it’s been a busy four decades. “There are only so many hours in the day,” East concedes. “But for years, friends have encouraged me to record a solo album. Some for so long they’d given up. However the best music that I’ve made over the years has always been a collaboration with my friends, so I decided it was time to take the plunge."

Meet Smooth Jazz saxophonist, Jazmin Ghent. This rising star is one to keep an eye on! Young Jazmin showed an interest in music at the age of 5, teaching piano in Sunday School by 8, and winning the NAACP's ACT-SO Competition at 17! This girl skyrocketed through Berklee on a full scholarship, graduated from Florida State University with a degree in music and then as if to make a dent as early as possible in her promising career, she walked away as the Opening Act winner onboard the prestigious Smooth Jazz Cruise in 2014! The talented Ms. Ghent is focused, and following her heart!
Born in Heidelberg, Germany and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. Jazmin Ghent is a gospel, jazz and contemporary saxophonist. She won numerous All State Honor Band awards.
