S1, E12 : Michael Mwenso (Vocals)


Vocalist Michael Mwenso hails from Sierra Leone, West Africa and is relatively new to New York City. He is a curator at Jazz at Lincoln Center and also appears on its radio station as a host. Mwenso is most known for his role in starting the successful jam session at the legendary Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London. As a kid, he performed onstage with James Brown and grew up hanging at the club with jazz legends like Betty Carter. He began a similar late-night jam series at Dizzy's Coca-Cola Club every Thursday night at JALC in mid-2012 and will expand it two a second night in September.
