Billy Jenkins: Ghost Music

Read "Ghost Music" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Ghost Music is Billy Jenkins's download-only follow-up to Death, Ritual & Resonation: Eight Improvised Studies On Low Strung Guitar (VOTP, 2015). It takes a similar tack to its predecessor inasmuch as it is entirely improvised; however the guitar is missing, replaced by piano. Jenkins last used a piano on his vinyl-only album Piano Sketches 1973-84 (Wood ...

Billy Jenkins With The Voice of God Collective: Scratches Of Spain

Read "Scratches Of Spain" reviewed by Roger Farbey

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of its original release on vinyl (it was later released on CD) this download-only version is a welcome reissue from the canon of Billy Jenkins recordings. It's a shame that it's only available as a download since it certainly merits a physical reissue. But a digital presence is certainly better than ...

Billy Jenkins: True Love Collection

Read "True Love Collection" reviewed by Roger Farbey

A few facts to dispense with first. True Love Collection now reissued as a download-only release, coincided with this album, originally released in 1998, being voted number 36 in BBC Music Jazz's 50 greatest jazz albums, announced in mid-November 2016 to coincide with the start of the London Jazz Festival. It's also been re- mixed and ...

Billy Jenkins: Death, Ritual & Resonation: Eight Improvised Studies On Low Strung Guitar

Read "Death, Ritual & Resonation: Eight Improvised Studies On Low Strung Guitar" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Having semi-retired from the music business in 2008 in favour of conducting Humanist (non-religious) funerals, Billy Jenkins returned to recording in 2014, releasing the highly acclaimed solo album Semi-Detached Suburban Home (Music For Low Strung Guitar). So its follow-up Death, Ritual & Resonation: Eight improvised studies on low strung guitar follows similar lines and compared to ...

Billy Jenkins: The Semi-Detached Suburban Home (Music For Low Strung Guitar)

Read "The Semi-Detached Suburban Home (Music For Low Strung Guitar)" reviewed by Roger Farbey

For the uninitiated, Billy Jenkins stands alone, a unique guitarist in a world full of axe murderers. His back catalogue contains some of the most compelling and often challenging music to be found within the context of jazz. He might be compared to Frank Zappa for both his humour and his eclectic style but Jenkins is ...
