With a dazzling cast of musicians, the Shakes combine the craft of consummate entertainers with improvisational prowess.
Born in the West African nation of Sierra Leone and weaned on jazz as a teenager hanging out at Ronnie Scott’s in London, Michael Mwenso became obsessed with the Harlem Renaissance when he settled in the neighborhood in 2012 after Wynton Marsalis recruited him to work with Jazz at Lincoln Center.
