Jacques Schwarz-Bart presents The Harlem Suite in preview of the 2023 CD release.
Jacques Schwarz-Bart has been at the center of several musical revolutions: neo-soul next to D’angelo and Erika Badu, New Jazz as a founding member of Roy Hargrove RH Factor. He outright created two surging new styles: Gwoka Jazz, and Voodoo jazz, reuniting jazz music with its Afro-Caribbean and spiritual origins. Jacques’ impressionistic writing, powerful tone, and wide-ranging language – both lyrical and angular – have fueled a growing presence on the world stage.
