Jazz in the Mills' "HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA" on Sunday, December 4th!

Catch us live on Sunday, December 4th for the Jazz in the Mills Holiday Extravaganza. I'll present my own "jazzy mix" of standards, holiday gems, swing, blues, latin-brazilian, and a few more surprises. More details to come.

Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in my current effort "Right to Love". It's continuing to get attention from industry professionals and it's continuing to win new listeners and audiences. I can't ask for much more than that. Sharing is what it's all about. "Life is a Song"!

"Right to Love"
My second album, Right to Loveis in full release. The project features the Thad Wilson Jazz Orchestra and original arrangements of a number of familiar favorites and rediscovered gems. This ambitious, independent project can be found here as well as CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and other such music distribution sites.

Various tracks from the CD have been added to jazz, big band, and cabaret radio playlists all across the country, into Canada, and as far away as Australia (thanks Lisa Reedy Promotions). I'm not sure exactly where it's all headed but the journey is fun and exciting. Let me know if you hear something from Right to Love played where you live. So far, here's what they're saying about it:

"Washington recalls an older generation of pop star, the crooner; however . . . Washington invigorates these jazz classics with a vibrant and mesmerizing personality that is uniquely him." — Stacey Zering (The Roots Music Authority - No Depression)

“. . . the kind of phrasing you got from the Coles, Eckstines . . . . more jazz in his soul than a
Broadway cat can be expected to show, this is a fine set . . . .” — Chris Specter (Midwest Record)

". . . a wonderful CD and Steve is an excellent vocalist. His interpretations of 'Caravan,' 'Quiet Nights,' 'The Lamp Is Low,' 'Alright Okay You Win' and 'Avalon' are right in the pocket." — Jim Stone, host of "Big Band Swing" on WNLZ Lansing MI

“Tasty stuff, in that sweetly soulful spot where jazz and pop come together . . . . work that wears
well and will last . . . Washington is an artist who has spent many years developing his chops and
knows how to apply his instrument to give shape to each song.” — Midtown Alex (Amazon)
“… a versatile and personable singer . . . . simply nice to hear.” — J.B. (All About Jazz)

Check it out for yourself. Order the CD or download the tracks. Tell me what you think. Add your comments. Share it with friends.

And I'm looking forward to more music and more fellowship in 2016!
