Night of Jazz at The Hotel Oloffson - Haiti

IFP23 invited to photograph Thurgot Theodat a world Class musician while in Haiti.

Thurgot Théodat Background :

Thurgot Théodat was born in Port-au-Prince in January 1959. Thurgot is a Haitian musician who discovered jazz when he was a student in Paris, France. When he turned twenty-three, he bought his first saxaphone, and embarked on a self-directed learning adventure. Thurgot was inspired by the sounds of Braxton, Tayler, Coltrane and Shepp. Back in Haiti, Thurgot joined Foula, giving the traditional music band a true jazz sound. He later composed soundtracks, presented shows on radio and TV, and even became the director of the ENARTS (National School of Arts). In parallel, he worked together with various Haitian jazz musicians and had his own band.  Badji, his first album, was a revelation of Voodoo-jazz.

The following art work was created by IFP23 for Théodat upcoming tours/marking.
Musical Vision  

People called rock & roll 'African music.' They called it 'voodoo music.' They said that it would drive the kids insane. They said that it was just a flash in the pan - the same thing that they always used to say about hip-hop. - Little Richard

Book Cover  for  The BADJI Journey, created by IFP23

Theodat's ability to infuse voodoo drum rhythm and Jazz is similar to that of  the Hotel Oloffson current manager Richard A. Morse, a US-born rock musician who came to Haiti 32 plus years ago to study voodoo drum rhythms and fuse it with his rock and roll style of music.  Morse's band name is "RAM"...

Smooth Jazz Night


Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn't methodical, but jazz isn't messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon.
 - Nat Wolff
