“Kenny Drew, Jr. will blow your mind! He gets my highest recommendation!” – Byron Stripling
Kenny Drew, Jr. is a jazz pianist with a style reminiscent of Oscar Peterson. The son of former John Coltrane sideman Kenny Drew, Drew Jr. has performed with such luminaries as Stanley Turrentine, Slide Hampton, Stanley Jordan, and the Mingus Big Band. This promises to be a grand kick-off to a terrific season of jazz.
