CD Description

Jean Carn – Trust Me

Jean Carn’s career popped up during the mid-’70s, singing with Earth, Wind & Fire on two albums, recording several times with Norman Connors, and reaching the charts via George Duke’s hit single “Reach for It.” In 1977, Carn was signed to Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff’s Philadelphia International Records; her debut album, Jean Carn, was a classy affair that merged the best of ’70s soul and jazz with solid songwriting and tight instrumental support (MFSB, Instant Funk). The debut single “Free Love” went to number 23 in the R&B charts. Several of the album’s tracks received considerable good radio airplay, and some tracks made the disco charts. In June 1978, her second album for the label was released; Happy to Be With You included the hit single “Don’t Let It Go to Your Head.”

Carn’s final Philadelphia International album, 1980’s When I Find You Love, was more of a return conceptually (musically and sonically) to Jean Carn. Produced by Dexter Wansel, the album rates as one of Carn’s best efforts. The smooth and halting “My Love Don’t Come Easy” peaked at number 35 in the R&B charts. Released in August 1981, Carn’s Sweet and Wonderful featured a remake of the Spinners’ “Love Don’t Love Nobody,” which went to number 35 R&B charts. Carne moved to Motown Records in 1982, making her label debut with the album Trust Me. The single “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” a cover of the Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes hit with backing vocals by the Temptations, went to number 49 R&B charts.

By 1986, Carn signed to Omni Records; Closer than Close was released in July of that year and the title track that went to number one in the R&B charts. Her 1988 album You’re a Part of Me included a hit cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Ain’t No Way.” Carn later signed with Place One Entertainment and made a couple of interesting records.
