"Besides being one of New York City's top-call drummers, Kenny Washington is one of the world’s experts of the history of jazz. He plays with a raw swing and has an extraordinary talent when it comes to orchestrating the music. There’s an appealing sense of urgency in his drumming that prompted the great pianist, Tommy Flanagan, to nickname Kenny, 'Mean Streets.'"
-Renee Rosnes, Artistic Director
Kenny Washington appears as part of the International All-Star "Jazz at the Philharmonic" on Friday.
