Thursday, March 1, 7:30pm at Piedmont Center for the Arts
Kenny Washington and Suzanna Smith join forces for a rare duo appearance. Expect an evening of spontaneity, loving duets and individual material from these two vocal powerhouses. JazzTimes called Suzanna “a sage swinger—never too much, never too little—as well as a first-rate songwriter.” And Wynton Marsalis said of Kenny, “I love this man! He’s a consummate professional with impeccable intonation; a real improviser who brings depth to everything he does. If you love music, you’ve got to love Kenny!” Joining the vocalists for this evening are three of the Bay Area’s finest players: Larry Dunlap on piano, Ron Belcher on bass, and Leon Joyce, Jr. on drums.
