JACQUES JEAN a.k.a. "TI JACQUES ALTO" : THE ART OF NOSE BLOWING A SAXOPHONE
By Jean Jean-Pierre
Just as Weber Sicot was the first Haitian to play 2 saxophones simultaneously; Marcel Bichotte (Old Jazz des Jeunes) and Pierre Richard Jackson (new Jazz des Jeunes) are the only 2 known Haitians sax players to practice circular breathing enabling them to play without interruption a long note indefinitely, Ti Jacques Alto (Orchestre Septentrional) was the first Haitian known to play the saxophone through his nose.
Ti Jacques, who passed away in February of 2001, was one of the best players of his time in Haiti. Like most sax players coming of age in the 60s, he was influenced by the unique Weber Sicot.
Nevertheless , Ti Jacques did find his own voice throughout his whole career with Orchestre Septentrional.
