The Jeff Jenkins Quintet features the music of Billy Strayhorn, one of America’s greatest composers, arrangers, and collaborative partner with Duke Ellington. Strayhorn’s musical main love was classical music, but jazz was the outlet that afforded him the full expression of his prodigious musical talents. He was regarded as the creative genius behind Duke Ellington’s creative genius. Duke Ellington wrote that “Billy Strayhorn was my right arm, my left arm, all the eyes in the back of my head, my brain waves in his head, and his in mine.”
Jeff will be accompanied by Michael D’Angelo (drums), Seth Lewis (bass), Eric Erhardt (sax), and Greg Gisbert (trumpet
