Raised by first-generation Haitians, Jean-Paul grew up amid an unusual blend of Haitian meringue, folkloric, and hard-edged urban blues of Chicago’s South Side. Along with his own singular musical vision, inspired by Howlin Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, and a splash of Carlos Santana, Bourelly began to formulate his unique musical synthesis. At the age of eighteen, after a one-year scholarship studying with the great alto saxophonist and educator Bunky Green, he moved to New York.
