Growing up in Motown and being raised by two musical parents it was probably inevitable that Zo! (Lorenzo Ferguson) would be involved in music. Described by his friend and collaborator Sy Smith as a “young Quincy Jones”, Zo! can do it all, just don’t ask him to sing. The Washington Informer caught up with Zo! ahead of his show at Blues Alley with Sy Smith and discussed his musical influences, finding the time to be a touring musician as well as a music educator and his collaboration with Sy Smith.
