Kenny Washington with the Michael O’Neill Quintet at Jazz at the Chimes
A virtuosic vocalist equally skilled at singing standards, gospel and blues, Kenny Washington thrills audiences with soulful interpretations and rapid-fire scatting. His frequent, close collaboration with saxophonist Michael O’Neill (captured
on the acclaimed CDs “The Long and Short of It” and “Still Dancing”) continues in this special Jazz at the Chimes event. Proceeds benefit the Jazzschool.
Please note: event will take place at Chapel of the Chimes, located at 4499 Piedmont Avenue, Oakland. http://oakland.chapelofthechimes.com/local-info/location-and-driving-directions
