Saxophonist and composer Jerome Sabbagh was born in Paris, France in 1973 and moved to New York in 1995. There he formed the collective Flipside, which recorded an eponymous album for Naxos Jazz. Since then, Jerome Sabbagh has been writing music and leading his own bands, recording three albums as a leader, "One Two Three," "Pogo" and "North." He has played with Laurent Coq, Jean-Michel Pilc, Victor Lewis, Reggie Workman, Guillermo Klein, Andrew Cyrille, Daniel Humair, Ben Monder, Ben Street, Rodney Green and James Carney.
"Mr. Sabbagh avoided direct allusions to the saxophone totems. What he is working toward, simply and effectively, is a sincerely personal vocabulary."
