About

The Best Living Male Jazz Vocalist on the Planet....none other than Kenny Washington!

Wynton Marsalis says: "I love this man! He's a consummate professional, with impeccable intonation. He's a real improviser who brings depth to everything he does. We all love Kenny. If you love music, you've got to love Kenny!"

Dubbed "the Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Kenny is a jazz virtuoso who thrills audiences with his soulful interpretations, seemingly limitless range, and rapid-fire scatting. Ravi Coltrane has declared Kenny his favorite male vocalist, and Mark Murphy said that Kenny was the only contemporary male vocalist carrying on the tradition. Kenny has performed and/or recorded with Wynton Marsalis and The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Roberta Gambarini, Karrin Allyson, Gregory Porter, Louie Bellson, Wycliffe Gordon, Jon Hendricks, Nancy King, Elvis Costello, Jason and Delfeayo Marsalis, Joe Locke, Geoffrey Keezer, George Mraz, Clarence Penn, John Handy, John Santos, the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, The Michael O'Neill Quintet, the Pacific Mambo Orchestra and the Slammin' All Body Band as well as countless other fine musicians around the world....
