Patience. Remembrance. Performance. This is the Bash. For Haitian Saxophonist, Producer and Composer, Jowee Omicil, love serves as the basis for his thematic jazz rhythms called the “Bash” sound. In the midst of an intense recording session for iconic Parisian label Jazz Village, the notion of “family” leads to an exploration behind the meaning of the “Bash” sound. This spiritual journey takes us to Jowee’s hometown of Montreal where we visit with father, Joseph and sister, Lyette, gaining insight into the memory of his late mother, Rose. After stops in NYC and St. Raphael, France, we head back to Paris where we weave through rehearsals, label meetings and performances. Here, we discover the Bash sound is more than a theme but a call and response: not only to Rose but the motherland of Haiti.
How does love sound?
