Inspired by John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, Dave Koz, Hugh Masekela, Kenny G, Victor Wooten, Charlie Parker, Aaron Neville, Kenny Nightingale is an American based Smooth Jazz recording artist with fusion of Gospel sounds and Contemporary Jazz with World Beat grooves.
His musical background began with a strong family of 8 talented and musically gifted brothers. Kenny’s father is a saxophonist and percussionist whom he always looked up to in his early years. His father owned a musical school in Nigeria, where Kenny first learned the art of playing the saxophone. After mastering the saxophone in the ghetto, he also learned how to play the piano, guitar and drums, then he started teaching his younger brothers at his father’s request because he was the eldest. Nightingale writes songs and creates sound that comes from the deep! He has been filled with a passion and love for music. That alone has confirmed to him that playing angelical sounds of smooth jazz with a unique blend form all parts of the world is what God has commissioned him this day.
