"Velvety...all romance...big, smooth tone...McKenna and his mates dare to play pretty and get away with it." -- Philadelphia Inquirer, July 1, 2001
About the Artist

His unlimited technique and beautiful soft-edged tone has graced the Al Raymond All-Star Big Band, Michel Legrand and Frank Sinatra. Because of his fertile musical mind, he is also a well-respected educator at Temple University, West Chester University, and Philadelphia Community College.
