For the first time in Australia; Jazz Sabbath
Jazz Sabbath is a jazz trio from the UK that plays (instrumental) jazz interpretations of Black Sabbath songs. Helmed by pianist Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band since 2004), Jazz Sabbath has been exploring the boundaries between jazz and the songs that defined heavy metal with sold out shows throughout Europe. Echoing already present jazz riffs and discovering new ones.
Presenting themselves as a jazz trio formed in 1968 and being the original writers of the tracks, later made famous by Black Sabbath, they released their self-titled debut album in 2020. In April 2022 they released Vol.2, which entered the Billboard jazz album chart at #6. Their albums’ streaming count is in the millions and both albums got special Record Store Day Mono editions, which sold out within days.
On the albums Adam is joined by Ash Soan on drums and Jerry Meehan on bass, plus a list of guest musicians, such as Simon McBride (Deep Purple) and Gus G (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne). However, all go by their 1960s pseudonyms.
