Jazz pianist/educator/composer Jeff Jenkins returns to the Nocturne stage to perform two sets of his soulful original compositions. The music, represents decades of evolution and work, and ranges in influences as diverse as Mingus to Evans, Jarett to Harris, and even Hancock and Rebennack! Be ready to celebrate your evening with a myriad of sounds ranging from introspective ballads, to romping, bouncing, swinging post bop. Jeff is joined by Todd Reid on drums and Seth Lewis on bass.
Jeff Jenkins began his musical life in pastoral Nebraska City, Nebr. and came to the piano through the guidance of his musical family, and quickly found that "playing by ear" proved to be perfect escape from an all too predictable small town reality. As a jazz pianist, Jeff has worked with a number of jazz legends including: Phil Woods, Freddie Hubbard, David Fathead Newman, Marlena Shaw, Eddie Harris, Richie Cole, Dakota Staton, Bobby Hutcherson, Curtis Fuller, Benny Golson, John Abercrombie, and Clark Terry. He is a talented band leader in his own right leading both straight ahead ensembles and "The Organization" a powerhouse B3 trio that plays often at Nocturne and other venues in Denver.
