Jazz Sabbath vs Black Sabbath

Jazz Sabbath turned the metal and the jazz world upside down in early 2020 with the release of their long long-lost album from 1969 and a documentary, which Jazz Sabbath said showed that Black Sabbath allegedly stole all their songs from the jazz trio. After 50 years, pianist Milton Keanes was out for justice...

However, on closer inspection, Keanes actually turned out to be none other than Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne's solo band) exploring the boundaries between jazz and the songs that defined heavy metal. Echoing already present jazz riffs and discovering new ones. 
With rave reviews from both the rock and jazz media, sold out shows throughout Europe and two albums high in the Billboard Jazz charts, this jazz trio is a unique live experience not to be missed!

The idea for Jazz Sabbath started in 2013 on a night off in Berlin during one of the Black Sabbath tours, when Adam and Sabbath's security guard sat at the hotel bar early in the morning. The security guard asked if Adam could play the Sabbath set on the piano in the bar. Adam thought it would be fun to play the songs as jazz improvised versions and then played until the bar staff wanted to go home.
