JOE LOCKE GROUP FEAT. VOCALIST KENNY WASHINGTON
RETURNS TO DIZZY'S CLUB COCA-COLA ON JANUARY 26-31

PERFORMANCES IN SUPPORT
OF FORTHCOMING RELEASE
FOR THE LOVE OF YOU

E1 Entertainment is proud to announce performance dates for the Joe Locke Group featuring vocalist Kenny Washington at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola on January 26th through 31st. The week-long engagement will launch their forthcoming January 26th release, For The Love of You .

Joining Locke and Washington is an all-star rhythm section: Grammy nominated pianist Geoffrey Keezer, bassist George Mraz, and drummer Clarence Penn.

When Locke's group made its debut last year at New York's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola , word quickly got out that this was a “can't miss" gig, and the lines at Jazz at Lincoln Center were proof positive of the fact.

Now, with the release of For The Love of You , jazz fans everywhere can hear what all the talk was about.

For the first time in many years, the vibesman includes vocals as a primary part of the mix. Forging a style that seems to be made of equal parts Nat King Cole and Donny Hathaway, Kenny Washingtonweaves his unique spell around a diverse repertoire. The seven vocal tunes include pieces taken from the contemporary pop / soul lexicon as well as the Great American Songbook.

The critical community continually cites Locke for his artistic work. He has been given the “Mallet Player of the Year" Award by the Jazz Journalists Association (JJA) on three occasions and has been voted the #1 “Rising Star" vibraphonist in DownBeat Magazine's Critic's Poll several times. Throughout his career, Locke has shared the stage luminaries ranging from Dizzy Gillespie, Pepper Adams and Mongo Santamaria to Rod Stewart and The Beastie Boys, among dozens of others.
