Jazz Up Your Life With A Jazz Singer Out of Liberia


                                                                     
For those who don’t know, I’m a jazz lover.  I always enjoyed listening to the traditional Mandingo music because it’s the closest sound to jazz that comes out of Africa.  The first time I came across this brother and found out he sings jazz, I had to hear him sing.  The moment in opened his mouth, I felt in love.  He sounded great and it felt good to know he was from Liberia.  I was proud; I had to spread the gospel with you guys.

Mr. Alhaj Azziz was born in Washington D.C to Liberian parents Charles Sherman and C. Leona Chesson.  He obtained his primary education in England, high school in Liberia and college in USA.  He started his career writing/playing for South African artist Hugh Maskela.  He wrote the hit maxi single A side “Give It Up” for Masekela amongst many songs.  He has toured Europe (Germany) as keyboard player with the band “Soulful Dynamics” from Liberia and Holland as writer/producer for the Dutch band “Manues”.  He also had his own band  L Mamba in Los Angeles and is presently in the Maryland area where here has performed many concerts with his backup band “2000 Black” and has appeared on T.V and radio.  A singer/songwriter/keyboard player/producer, playing African/Jazz Fusion he has opened for such artist as James Brown, John Lucians, Toots and The Maytels.  He has his company “Pasajamba Productions”   http://pasajamba.homestead.com/ (spelled PASSAJAMBA on YouTube), he has 3 CD’s to his credit “Khalahari”, “Moving Into The Light”, “Oneness” and a cassette “Bring The Sunshine Back To My Country” “Ronney King Trail”.  With Pasajamba Productions, it is his vision to attract investment to Liberia through entertainment by producing quality music, music videos, infomercials, commercials, African movies, novels and poetry.

  1. The diversity of our talents as a people is so wide and far reaching. How is it that we play second fiddle all the time? This could be classed as something like Fela would do. Great job!!!! Keep playing
