Musician Spotlight: Terri Jo Jenkins

Oct 2, 2018

One of three daughters of an accomplished pianist and a fine singer, Terri Jo started her professional musical life at about age 10 singing three-part harmony with her sisters at a Nebraska county fair. That first show included “Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey.”  There was no direct leap to jazz.  Rather, she has lived a life of all kinds of music that finally brought her to Denver and her much-deserved respect as a jazz singer.

“Live and Local” music is a GREAT reason to support KUVO during the Fall Membership Campaign! Tune in this Sunday, October 7, at 4 p.m., to KUVO’s performance archive show “On Stage” featuring recordings from Denver’s favorite bluesman, Sam Mayfield!

This Sunday, September 23, at 4 pm, KUVO’s re-broadcast show “On Stage” features the jazz and poetry of David Amram. Amram was there in clubs of Greenwich Village in the 1950s when Beat Poets first set their verse to jazz. Since then his music and compositions have touched the big screen and crossed jazz, classical and Latin music genres.
