Mazel tov to musician Jacques Schwarz-Bart for his new set of world music and jazz

He is the son of a famous scholar and novelist, Andre Schwarz-Bart (1928-2006) who wrote the judaic classic “Last of The Just”.

I met Jacques about 1998 when James Hurt Band, with a Blue Note release, played The Cub. Scott Amendola featuring Todd Sickafoose and Jenny Scheinman were also on the bill.
I think of Jacques as Black or French, but he is also Caribbean and Jewish.
I will update with more notes on the music, which features unusual percussion.
Reminds of Don Cherry, thoth, Andy Palacio, bemsha swing.
