A Happy New Year To All Billy Listeners!

 

 2011-01-02 09:45:48

Mr Jenkins wishes everyone who has been supporting and listening to his music a fascinating and rewarding 2011!

For the guitarist, the Billy 10 campaign will be hard to top in terms of creativity and he has much to thank his inspired creative team of Fiona Wootton, Mike Gavin and Steve Shepherd for overseeing two new album releases, five download re-release albums, a BBC R3 'Jazz on 3' session, an appearance on the flagship BBC R4 'Midweek' programme with Libby Purves......the honour of being a 'Listed Londoner' on Robert Elms much listened to BBC Radio London.... show a documentary 'A Man From Lewisham' about his music and humanist funeral officiating made by Antonio Rue Ribeiro and a climactic performance with the BBC Big Band with arrangements by Iain Ballamy - and many other exciting events.

What now for 2011?

Producer Charlie Hart is currently mixing the new album 'Jazz Gives Me The Blues' featuring award winning organist Jim Watson and award winning saxophonist and flautist Finn Peters. This third album in the 'Calling Card Collection' is provisionally scheduled for a Spring release... the BBC Big Band concert will be broadcast on Radio 3 on 30th January, preparatory work is taking place on the following album entitled 'Blues Is The New Jazz'; Antonio Rue Ribeiro continues to film Billy to lengthen the documentary, whilst the bandleader carefully studies 'long tail' marketing strategy and ruminates on the 'validity' of downloaded music and whether to implement another clutch of download re-releases; researching the relevance of music in today's 'over noisy, tick box, mouse click' fast moving world - whilst also undergoing continued professional development as a humanist funeral officiant and creating and conducting ceremonies throughout SE London and local environs.

To that end, there will be very few live performances in 2011.
