Music | Jacques Schwarz-Bar: Jewish Chants and Afro-Caribbean Jazz Quintet

Co-Presented with Hamptons Jazz Fest

July 15, 6 pm - 7:30 pm

REGISTER

Summer concerts on the Terrace continue with a live jazz performance by Jacques Schwarz-Bart: Jewish Chants and Afro-Caribbean Jazz Quintet, co-presented with Hamptons Jazz Fest. As part of the second annual Hamptons Jazz Fest, Schwarz-Bart brings exciting lyrical jazz styles to the Parrish. 

Born in Guadalupe, Jacques Schwarz-Bart pursued a path of music and mysticism, playing alongside luminaries such as Roy Hargrove, Danilo Perez, Ari Hoenig, Meshell n’Degeocello and D’angelo or Chucho Valdes. He outright created two surging new styles: Gwoka Jazz, and Voodoo Jazz, reuniting jazz music with its Afro-Caribbean and spiritual origins. With impressionistic writing, powerful tone, and wide-ranging language – both lyrical and angular – these jazz styles have fueled a growing presence on the world stage. Leading the Gwoka Jazz Project, Schwarz-Bart recorded two albums for Universal, Soné Ka La and Abyss, which built his career as an internationally acclaimed jazz musician and band leader. 

In 2010, he released Rise Above, which revives his long-lasting collaboration with singer – and spouse – Stephanie McKay and blends NY urban mood and Caribbean feelings. Schwarz-Bart went on to work on projects and recordings including The Art of Dreaming, Jazz Racine Haiti, Creole Spirits, Voodoo Jazz Trio and Hazzan. In 2016, Schwarz-Bart joined the faculty at Berklee College of Music as an Associate Professor for ensembles of jazz and neo-soul music.
