Jazz Sabbath is a jazz trio from the United Kingdom who play (instrumental) jazz interpretations of Black Sabbath songs. Helmed by pianist Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band since 2004), Jazz Sabbath explores the boundaries between jazz and the songs that defined heavy metal. Echoing already present jazz riffs and discovering new ones; extending the original song’s length in the process.
Presenting themselves as a jazz trio formed in 1968 and being the original writers of the tracks, later made famous by Black Sabbath, the Jazz Sabbath album was released in April 2020. The album was accompanied by an online documentary about the early days of Jazz Sabbath and the alleged theft of their songs by Black Sabbath.
The documentary gained extensive media coverage and the album itself got rave reviewsfrom both rock and jazz critics; entering jazz album charts worldwide. In November 2020 aspecial mono edition of the album was released through Record Store Day. All 1500 copies were sold out in one day.
On the album Adam is joined by Ash Soan (Adele) on drums and Jerry Meehan (Robbie
Williams) on bass, plus a number of guest musicians, such as Fraser T. Smith (Craig David,
Sam Smith). However, all go by their 1960s pseudonyms.
