The Magic of Jazz featuring Kenny Washington & Suzanna Smith
Listen to the magic as Smith, who combines the confessional imperative of a singer/songwriter with the rhythmic acuity of a jazz chanteuse, teams up with Washington, a jazz virtuoso who thrills audiences with his soulful interpretations, seemingly limitless range, and rapid-fire scatting. Both have superb voices that glide effortlessly into the stratosphere. The music comes from a tradition of soul that is deep and heartfelt. Their rhythmic energy and imaginative interpretations bring this lovely music to life in a way that is both traditional and completely new.
Smith is a truly unique talent, whose musical stock is that proverbial arrow pointing straight uporganic, eclectic, and contemporary, yet rooted in the tradition of what old school vocal jazz was once all aboutsoul. Brent Black, criticaljazz.com
Kenny Washington is the Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene, a vocalist with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere. Andrew Gilbert, SF Chronicle
