O’s Notes: Balladeer Kenny Washington has a groovin’ baritone and a wide range that puts him in the sweet spot for the great majority of classics. The New Orleans native migrated to the Bay Area but has toured extensively and made a splash in New York as well. What’s The Hurry is a great sampling of his work with great takes of “I Ain’t Got Nothin’ But The Blues”, “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”, “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Invitation”. The support from pianist Josh Nelson, guitarist Jeff Massanari, bassist Dan Friszli and Victor Goins’s (sax, cl) is first rate. Kenny works deep emotion into all he touches and audiences will feel it!
