Commonly known as the “jazz encyclopedia,” New York native Kenny Washington is a one of a kind; teacher, performer, historian, you name it. Mr. Washington is revered in most circles as a master of his craft and besides being an amazing performer, Kenny is also very giving of his time and advice, an attribute that we here at Beato’s Blog think would benefit so many young players.

Mr. Washington’s thoughts are intriguing and compelling, to say the least.
