All That Jazz
Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra
Featuring a special guest artist every session
Kenny Washington, vocalist
Emulating the classic styles of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and infusing colors of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, Kenny's free, playful approach with over a four-octave range is awe inspiring. His tone on ballads is liquid, his scat is rapid-fire, passionate, melodious, and his intonation is so precise that it becomes noticeable if the piano wasn’t tuned that day. With a childhood background singing in gospel, Kenny is at home with the blues as well as jazz.
Washington is the featured vocalist on saxophonist Michael O'Neill's The Long and the Short of It and Still Dancin’ recorded on Jazzmo records. Kenny is also one of the featured vocalists on the Slammin All- Body Band CD with Keith Terry.
