Asenso is one of those musicians bringing us back onto the almost-forgotten path and after listening to Jaara, I felt a stirring within me. Not that kind of stirring 😏. But a pleasurable emotion that all was not lost.
grew up in a house where the first sounds that woke me up wasn't the neighbors crazy cockadoodling cock; but the strumming of guitars, tooting of trumpets and pinkling of piano keys and the silky voice of Nat King Cole drifting out of the vintage black LP record.
Jazz is one genre I always listen to on iTunes when work is stressing me out. So imagine my delight when I got an invitation to attend the first Ghana Jazz Festival by Stanbic Bank Ghana.
