Biography

Singer, actress and BIG BAND vocalist, Kathy Jenkins developed her lush singing style performing in hundreds of concerts across America and Europe with The United States Air Force Band. The possessor of a big sensuous voice, Jenkins has recorded three CD’s that have hit high notes with the critics. No less an authority than Jazz Times called her a “superb jazz singer.”

Her most recent CD "I'm Way Ahead" features pianist arranger Yaron Gershovsky, Musical Director for The Manhattan Transfer with bassist Boris Kozlov and other top New York City musicians.   A small horn section and string quartet takes Jenkins out of the Big Band genre with original arrangements of Broadway show tunes and Jazz Standards.

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Jenkins grew up listening to her father’s beautiful Irish tenor and her mother’s torch versions of Judy Garland songs. She knew from the age of four that she wanted to sing, and her earliest “performances” were to construction workers in her neighborhood to coax them to buy from her lemonade stand!  More recently, Kathy electrified audiences with her stage presence and vocal dynamics as a guest vocalist with the Moscow Jazz Orchestra.  Clubs and Festivals include Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in New York City, Blues Alley in Washington D.C., Chris's Jazz Club in Philadelphia, Jazz & Caz Festival in Cazenovia, NY Wigan Jazz Festival in England Sochi Jazz Festival in Sochi, RU Moscow House of Music in Moscow, RU to name a few.  She also performed with the Orchestra in Red Square at a 120th year celebration of GUM, a landmark building now a shopping mall, across from the Lenin Mausoleum.

Kathy performs with various Big Bands in the NY-NJ Tri-State area. Recent venues include the Middletown Art Center NJ, the NY Hilton NYC and "On Stage At Kingsborough"/"Bringing World-Class Performances Home" as part of the "Hot Summer Nights" concert series in Brooklyn, NY and  Centennial FREE to Sing Concert, Tuscon, AZ.

Kathy's latest SHOW, "Broadway Jazzed!" I'm Way Ahead debuted this year at Bonafides Club in NYC with pianist/arranger Yaron Gershovsky, Musical Director for The Manhattan Transfer and other top world-class New York City musicians. Her CD entitled the same featured a small horn section and string quartet taking Jenkins out of the Big Band genre with original arrangements of Broadway show tunes, Jazz Standards and even Cabaret!
