About the artist
Jacques Schwarz-Bart has been at the center of several musical revolutions: from neo soul next to D’angelo and Erykah Badu to New Jazz as a founding member of Roy Hargrove RH Factor. He is a leading pioneer in the creation of 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. Schwarz-Bart was awarded the status of Knights of the Arts and Letters by the French government in 2015. He teaches at Berklee College of Music while keeping up with a steady touring schedule.
