Jasmine Lovell-Smith's Towering Poppies Release Colorful Debut "Fortune Songs"

The term “Towering Poppies,” which saxophonist Jasmine Lovell-Smith chose to christen her stellar quintet, is an evocative one, conjuring images of radiant flowers reaching heavenward, bold colors against a bright sky. Those images are perfectly appropriate for the stunning sounds of Lovell-Smith’s debut CD, Fortune Songs. But for the New Zealand native, the name has a ...
