    Bobbe Norris and Kenny Washington with The Larry Dunlap Trio

    March 17, 2012 - 07:30 PM to March 18, 2012 - 07:30 PM
    1220 Linda Mar Blvd
    CA 94044

    Two of the Bay Area’s top vocalists join foces once again for an unforgettable evening. No Blarney!

    Bobbe Norris

    Bobbe is recognized worldwide as a brilliant vocal interpreter who applies her dusky contralto to carefully chosen songs, some quite obscure. Longtime fan Rex Reed has written that “she reaches into a lyric like she’s pulling taffy and brings out the sweetness and rich flavor of each song, discarding anything superfluous or sticky”. On a recent British tour, The Times (London) wrote: “Norris has no time for artifice. Her lush contralto is direct and unfussy. She is a natural storyteller; as in the music of Chris Connor or Johnny Hartman, every syllable of every lyric is made to count.”

    Kenny Washington

    Kenny Washington is a jazz vocalist virtuoso. With a range over four octaves, his playful, free approach to any tune is truly awe inspiring. His tone on ballads is liquid, his scat is so rapid-fire, passionate, melodious and inventive that subsequent saxophone solos often pale, and his intonation is so precise that it becomes noticeable 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. The San Francisco Chronicle has called Kenny “the Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene, a vocalist with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere.”

    Once more with feeling

    Bobbe and Kenny are two of the top vocal interpreters singing today. Their stylistic contrasts make for a magical match of voices; Bobbe deep in the traditions of Nat ‘King’ Cole and Ella Fitzgerald and Kenny coming from a background that includes Ella, Stevie Wonder and his own soulful New Orleans roots. Last year they shared this same stage for an outstanding evening of song. Don’t miss this second time around.
