The Dynamic Trio - Kenny Washington, Frank Jackson & Al Obidinski
This is a unique night that should not be missed! Three legends of jazz playing together. Kenny Washington - the premier jazz vocalist, together with Frank Jackson - a jazz heavy hitter who has played piano & sung with everyone, and Al Obidinski, masterful bassist and scatter.

Legendary Bay Area jazz pianist & vocalist Frank Jackson, is recognized as a brilliant jazz pianist, & vocalist.  Frank is the "real deal" - He has heard it all, sung it all and met them all. This jazz pioneer of the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz District has played with and for Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Charlie 'Bird' Parker, Dexter Gordon, 'T-Bone' Walker, and Jimmy Witherspoon. He has a vast repertoire' and will wow us with his warm vocal style and expressive piano work.

The amazing Kenny Washington will be performing with Frank. Kenny has been dubbed the Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene, a vocalist with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere. Capable of astounding improvisational flights, he can also croon like a '70s soul star (think Donny Hathaway or Al Green), with an emotional intensity that's bracing." -- the San Francisco Chronicle

Al Obidinski is a superb bassist with a great scat. Al's pedigree is just as amazing as Kenny & Frank. Having toured and played with Frank Sinatra & Anita O'Day, he has the chops to bring it.

This will be a jaw-dropping experience - three superstars playing together in an intimate setting. Advance purchase highly recommended.
