Blick Bassy
Akö (No Format!)


Born in Cameroon but now resident in Paris, Blick Bassy spent a decade in the jazz fusion group Macase. His third solo album, Akö, spans the African diaspora, his guitar and haunting, distinctive voice backed by the unusual combination of cello, trombone and harmonica. It’s a singular collection that combines Afro-blues, jazz syncopation, ballads and jug band and folk influences. Reviewed in #109.
