Kenny Washington Recording Launch Party, Part 2
On the eve of heading into the studio, two very lucky Sound Room audiences will have the chance to witness Kenny Washington put finishing touches on new music for his upcoming recording.

Need any further convincing? 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!"

We agree and have decided its beyond time for the best living male jazz vocalist to make a studio recording of his own. The Sound Room is proud to support Kenny in this endeavor and invites you to join as well. This evenings ticket sales and copies of the CD pre-purchased the night of the show will help fund studio time and the many other expenses involved in making this recording. When released, those who have pre-purchased will receive a signed copy of the CD and be invited to a reception at the Sound Room.

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.

"Kenny's one of the very 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", said vibes great Joe Locke.

Joining Kenny will be the incomparable Josh Nelson on piano, Marcus Shelby on bass and Lorca Hart on drums.
