I need assistance for two two artists names romanizations:

永島ゆみ
I'm 90 per cent sure that this artist name is Yumi Nagashima but I haven't found any source that relates any Yumi Nagashima with any music-related, nor with the Layton games.

藤美智子
This is more difficult, could be something like "Tomoko/Michiko Fujimi/Fujiyoshi" but no luck with any combination in google. A pretty obscure flutist but here you can see a pic of her.

This artist name is actually Yumi Eishima. Confirmed in her blog. The full kanji name is 永島友美子 (Yumiko Eishima).

I also couldn't find any source confirming her name...

Perhaps you don't search by her name in Kanji yet? (Google.com hits her blog soon). According to that blog anyway, her real name is 永島友美子 (Yumiko Eishima) but she uses 永島ゆみ as her alias. She doesn't give us a reading of her alias, but based on her real name, I guess it's Yumi Eishima.

Now, I wonder if we should credit each individual performer instead of Layton Grand Caravan Orchestra if they're listed in the booklets... (but perhaps this issue already came under consideration after this thread)

Looks like you were breaking apart her name as 藤美 智子. This page about the same event (even has the same pictures) breaks it as 藤 美智子 instead, which would probably be Michiko Fuji, but I didn't have any luck confirming that either.

"Spectre's Call" is the European subtitle for the game, not necessarily a strict translation of the Japanese.

A call can be an instrument producing the sound of an animal, used to lure that animal (a duck call for instance). I don't know if that's the meaning of call they were going for in the title, because the titular flute is in fact a flute, but it's used to summon the specter so figuratively it kind of works.
