Jazmin is a trio of women jazz musicians who play music from the Standard Jazz repertoire, to enhance the dining atmosphere or special occasion, or as a center-stage performance and swing dance band. In the tradition of the classic piano trios of the 1940's and 50's, they play their own arrangements of tunes by Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Dave Brubeck and Charlie Parker. Also the smooth Latin sounds of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fisher, and some get-down blues can all be heard in a set.
Lori Stotko's classical training brings strong technique and a real flourish to her tasteful jazz piano. The experience of bassist Toni Clark and drummer Patty Rokeach in big band and other styles of music gives them the strength and scope to provide solid backup and some interesting solo work of their own. Jazmin is available for work in clubs and restaurants, for private parties, weddings and other extra-ordinary functions. Although they typically work as a trio, Lori Stotko can be hired as a solo pianist; or the group can work as a duo, trio or quartet (with a saxophone or trumpet player) as best suits the occasion.
