He was born right into the jazz and music crowd with Valerie Pinkston (singer behind, among others, Diana Ross, Beyoncé, Ray Charles) and saxophonist Scott Mayo (Earth, Wind & Fire, etc.) as parents. At a young age he took lessons from Herbie Hancock and the choice forward was a foregone conclusion. Now he is hailed as one of the world's absolute best jazz vocalists, renowned for his outstanding balance.

Norrbotten Big Band's genre-crossing trombonist Kristian Persson says:
- It feels awesome that we managed to get such a prominent vocalist here! His music manages to be both open-hearted and complex at the same time. We are talking about a super-virtuoso and world artist. And as with all champions, it will be great to meet him...

The orchestra's artistic director Joakim Milder is also satisfied.
- Michael Mayo creates contemporary, deeply appealing jazz music with the voice at the center. An unlimited instrumentalist who will fascinate and inspire the numerous crowds that we expect will make the pilgrimage to the concerts, he says with a twinkle in his eye.

Swedish drummer Calle Rasmusson is the organizer and conductor and the bar is set high with the expectation of great swing under a roof that spans many genres.
