News: Jacques Schwarz-Bart - HAZZAN

Posted September 11, 2018

Hazzan is a Jazz creation embracing Jewish liturgical music, improvisational sequences and infectious rhythms. The name Hazzan means cantor in the Jewish tradition. It came to me from a Rabbi commenting on my performance of Adon Olam as a jazz duet for the Jewish French Foundation (FJF) in 2008. He said: “When you played, your notes sounded like a prayer. You are a hazzan on your saxophone”.
