Zacchae'us Paul - Jazz Money

Blending funk, jazz-rock, and futuristic gospel with Atlanta hip-hop and Caribbean rhythms, Zacchae’us Paul's Jazz Money pushes the boundaries of jazz into a deeply personal, youthful expression.

From Zacchae’us Paul, the breakout sensation of New York Winter JazzFest, is Jazz Money, a mind-expanding fusion of funk, jazz-rock, and futuristic gospel. As highlighted by The New York Times' Giovani Russenello, "Paul’s music seamlessly weaves together influences ranging from Atlanta hip-hop to Caribbean rhythms and the soulful traditions of gospel. “Speaking of surprises, my biggest of the weekend was Zacchae’us Paul," shared Russenello, "he danced in and out of funk, jazz-rock fusion, and a kind of futuristic gospel.”

Featuring a stellar lineup including Terri Lyne Carrington, Melanie Charles, Cisco Swank, and Morgan Guerin, Jazz Money is more than just an album - it reflects Paul’s deep-rooted understanding of Black music and the African diaspora. Drawing from his Atlanta upbringing and enriching experiences in Puerto Rico, Paul molds jazz into a personal, youthful expression that resonates with both introspection and irreverence.

“In creating this album," reflected Paul, "I wanted to blend my Atlanta roots with the gospel sounds and Caribbean rhythms that have shaped me as a musician. Jazz Money is my way of pushing the boundaries of what jazz can be."

On the album, Paul has collaborated with a dynamic ensemble of emerging talents and seasoned veterans led by the vision of executive producer Terri Lyne Carrington. His musical evolution - from childhood experiments in his home studio to the discovery of jazz icons like Duke Ellington which challenged him to look beyond his church music roots - ultimately culminated in Jazz Money, an innovative confirmation to the evolving legacy of American music. Paul’s invitation to listeners is clear: dive into this album and discover it; every track holds multiple meanings, waiting to be explored from new perspectives.
