"Chocolate Baby" is the newest release by Swiss singer/songwriter JAZZMIN. The 14 catchy pop tunes were penned by JAZZMIN together with producer and writer Beni Mosele. With a generous helping of Spanish guitar, the sometimes catchy, sometimes atmospheric songs bring a Latin touch guaranteed to put you in the mood for strolling barefoot on the beach on a warm summer evening. JAZZMIN's warm and velvet-like voice suffuses seductiveness and fragility, youth and maturity into a very pleasing blend that at once excites and relaxes. Stylistically, this record is set somewhere between Pop and Bossa. The tasteful arrangements leave lots of room for JAZZMIN to weave threads of silk and sisal into a rich tapestry. The lyrics move between dreamy, wistful, occasionally melancholy like a sunset, and then turning saucy and whimsical. They tell stories of life, love, breakups and - chocolate. Easy listening with depth.

JAZZMIN discovered her love of singing as a small child. At 12 years of age she began studying classical voice, and started performing regularly already as a teenager. After receiving her diploma in Languages, she took the decision to make music her occupation and began to study singing at the Jazz School in Luzern, and then at the Swiss Jazz School in Bern. She has never regretted her decision to turn her passion into her profession. "I have the best job in the world. I get to do what I love best, namely singing, and at the same time can add happiness to other's lives. Moving people with my singing and taking them out of their workaday lives, even for a few moments, is a true gift".
