“Kenny’s one of the greatest living male vocalists, without a doubt; He’s a sublime storyteller and exquisite balladeer. I love his familiarity with R&B, with Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye and how he can inject that feeling into the American Songbook in a very mature way.” – Joe Locke
No one has done more to showcase Kenny’s extraordinary talent than saxophonist/arranger Michael O’Neill who has created a series of projects over the past decade featuring inventive arrangements specifically designed for Washington’s nonpareil talent.
Performing together regularly at jazz clubs, theatres and major festivals, the two have become dear friends and creative comrades. As a prolific composer with a reputation for bringing out the best in jazz singers, O’Neill featured Washington on his first album “The Long and the Short Of It” which incorporated Washington’s soul drenched voice as part of sextet horn arrangements. The dazzling approach came full circle on O’Neill and Washington’s critically acclaimed 2007 album ‘Still Dancin.’ Their latest collaboration, “New Beginnings” marks a new phase and according to O’Neill,” Kenny has never sounded better.”
Their band features trumpeter Erik Jekabson, pianist John R Burr, bassist Dan Feiszli and drummer Alan Hall.
