If you have never heard this New Orleans native sing before, get ready for a jaw dropping experience. Kenny is a jazz vocalist virtuoso. 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 inventive, and his intonation is so precise that it makes you notice if the piano wasn’t tuned that day. His range seems limitless. With a childhood background singing in gospel, Kenny is at home with the Blues as well as Jazz. This man is a must-see.
“The Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene, with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere.” – San Francisco Chronicle
Featured Vocalist with Wynton Marsalis & the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra
