With such mentors as Coltrane drummer Elvin Jones to the Godfather of Soul James Brown, Michael Mwenso's background couldn't be more engaging if we made it up ourselves. But it's what he's become that's so exciting. Michael's madcap, spontaneous mix of blues, Black American folk music, big-band standards and high-octane be-bop, all under his gritty, growly voice, has been captivating audiences of all ages all over the world. Did we mention he's bringing a tap dancer tonight?
