The Long And Short Of It

Showcasing some of the very best of the Bay? musicians: Michael O?eill (saxes), Glen Pearson (piano), Steve Campos (trumpet), Deszon Claiborne (drums), Jim Kerwin (bass), and vocalist Kenny Washington, this group performs a rich set of standards and originals arranged by O?eill. If you have never heard New Orleans native, Kenny Washington before, be prepared to have your jaw drop! With his four-octave range, this jazz virtuoso emulates the classic styles of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn with the infusion of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway. Washington also utilizes his voice as an additional horn, performing melodic lines without words in unison O?eil to create a unique timbre. Listening samples online at www.mosax.com
