Throughout his career Jenkins has appeared locally, nationally and internationally in festivals and clubs with his eponymous ensembles, or as a guest artist with jazz greats including Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Harris, Clark Terry, The New York Voices, Bobby Hutcherson, and John Abercrombie, among others. A product of the acclaimed jazz program at the University of North Texas, Jenkins continued his piano studies in the New York City studios of Fred Hirsch, Richie Beirach, and Kenny Barron. Based in Manhattan in the 1980s, Jenkins performed in noted jazz venues throughout the city, and appeared as principal pianist forseveral Broadway musicals. A gifted bandleader and in-demand sideman across Colorado, Omaha, and the western region, Jenkins also mixes and produces music professionally in his Mixdown Sound recording studio.

Jackie Allen

Allen’s voice is both crystalline and soulful, waxing romantic and poetic. This is four-hundred-dollar-a-bottle jazz, no cheap imitation.(Rolling Stone) Allens greatest strength is her sheer musicality and the way in which she both frames and interprets her songs. (Los Angeles Times)Musically sophisticated and artistically daring.(Chicago Tribune) Described asutterly distinctive and even innovative by Billboard Magazine, Jackie is renown for her transcendent interpretations. Her extraordinary talent has taken her on multiple tours of Europe, North Africa, South America and Asia. Nationally she has toured both coasts and in-between appearing in Los Angeles at Catalina’s, San Francisco at Yoshi’s, San Diego at Humphrey’s, Minneapolis at the Dakota, Chicago at the Jazz Showcase and the Chicago Theater, and New York City at The Blue Note and The Josef Papp Public Theater.

Jackie began her professional career performing with the legendary pianist/organist Melvin Rhyne (Wes Montgomery Trio) for four years before moving to Chicago. There she began her recording career, recording for independent and major labels including Lake Shore Jazz, Naxos Jazz, A440, Red Mark, Blue Note Records and others. Jackie met “Chicago’s First Lady of Jazz” pianist/vocalist Judy Roberts and began a long musical relationship recording two CDs, Santa Baby and Autumn Leaves. Jackie and her own combo recorded three critically acclaimed CDs for A440 and Blue Note: The Men In My Life (2003),Love Is Blue (2004) and Tangled (2006). Her 2009 release, Starry Night, wasrecorded live with chamber or­chestra and features star-themed songs penned by arrangers who have written for Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Doc Severinsen, and Bobby McFerrin. My Favorite Color(2014) features innovative takes on jazz standards and pop classics and was listed in USA Today’s Top Ten List and Rose Fingered Dawn (2017), a collection of original tunes composed for Jackie by her husband, bassist Hans Sturm, was called “another triumph” by JazzTimes Magazine. Her latest project, A Romantic Evening with Jackie Allen(2019), was filmed live and shown nationally on PBS-TV. The project features her Chicago quartet and special guest, legendary saxophonist Bob Sheppard.

During his undergraduate program, Jeffery played R&B, Gospel, and Jazz throughout North Carolina, and embarked on another musical journey to obtain his M.M. in Jazz Studies at North Carolina Central University under the direction of Dr. Ira Wiggins, where he was fortunate to learn from Branford Marsalis and Joey Calderazzo.
