Deeply rooted in African Jazz his melodic tunes are backed by a powerful rhythm section consisting of electric bass and acoustic piano as pillars, giving space for the improvisations creating a landscape that moves between Jazz and the African urban soundscape.

On this performance Mazuze will be featuring some of prominent musicians from Canada and Portugal on this performance as an extension of his various collaboration projects.

The JazzCD.no – 7th set shows the variety, versatility and quality of jazz in Norway today.
