Orice Jenkins, 2019, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Pianist, composer and baritone vocalist Orice Jenkins is proud of his heritage and he takes every opportunity to embrace it, learn, surface and share the richness of African American culture.“Centennial Cole“is dedicated to the legendary Nat King Cole, a major inspiration to Jenkins. He keeps things simple with a minimalist approach on band configurations. Whether it is a traditional rhythm section, finger snaps, or a string Quartet, you get to hear clear, articulate vocals with the necessary company. Orice speaks volume and recreates Cole’s music with his own signature. Highlights are ‘Birmingham‘, ‘Blame It On My Youth‘ and ‘Nature Boy‘.
