Bill Henderson & His Trio at The Kennedy Center

Bill Henderson & His Trio at The Kennedy Center on Jazzset, Sunday, June 5, 8:00 p.m.

Lauded as a "sensational veteran jazz singer" by the New Yorker, two-time Grammy? nominee Bill Henderson has crafted a gruff and gravelly, blues-influenced voice that only gets better over time. For more than 50 years, the Chicago-born vocalist with hard-bop roots has been delivering the goods through his deep baritone, exquisite vocal phrasing, and lots of sly humor and heart. His unrelenting acting career makes his singing engagements extremely rare events, so don?t miss this special opportunity to hear a jazz master who "sings every lyric as though he has lived it" (The Village Voice).
