MUSIC REVIEW BY Dave Rogers, WTJU - Richmond

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Veteran keyboard player and teacher at University of Colorado (Boulder) and the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts, Jeff Jenkins concentrates on the B3 for this outing. His early concentration on piano included study with Richie Beirach and Kenny Barron and performing with Phil Woods, Freddie Hubbard, David Fathead Newman, Eddie Harris, Benny Golson, John Abercrombie, and Clark Terry. He composed 9 of the 11 songs on this disc, covering a wide stylistic range with Dave Corbus (guitar) and Alwyn Robinson (drums). This disc was recorded live in one room with no overdubs, so it's as close to a live performance as you can get. There is something here for anyone who likes the B3. Corbus' guitar playing is both supportive of Jenkins' solos and a wonderful voice of its time for his own when solos. The brooding "Trayvon" is a sharp departure, closing the disc with its circles of unresolved darkness until its effectively abrupt end.
