The Alex Jenkins trio features drummer Alex Jenkins, a stalwart of the northern California jazz scene, Gerry Pineda on bass and native Australian/recent New York transplant Jacam Manricks on alto and soprano saxes and alto flute. Jenkins not only is a longtime practitioner of jazz drumming, particularly that of personal favorite Elvin Jones, but he also has traveled to India to immerse himself deeply in south Asian percussion styles. He also studied under teacher Ali Akbar Khan for five years at Khan’s school in San Rafael, Calif. Those global influences can be heard both in Jenkins’ songwriting and in his drumming. He teaches drums and percussion in Sacramento, where he and the other two trio members reside.

This free Corin Courtyard performance is supported by the Mondavi Center Artistic Ventures Fund.
