Orice Jenkins is a vocalist, arranger, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist signed to independent imprint Truth Revolution Recording Collective. After three remarkably diverse projects, his newest album, ‘Centennial Cole’, is a celebration of a great voice from the past: Nat ‘King’ Cole. Released in September of 2019, the courageous body of work has been featured in Jazziz, JazzWeekly, and JazzTimesmagazines. Jenkins performed his own soulful arrangements of timeless tunes, similar to his work on his 2016 release, ‘Soar’, which reached #11 on the iTunes jazz chart. Jenkins became notorious for his hip-hop laden covers of jazz standards like Bye Bye Blackbird and Body & Soul, as well as his swinging treatments to songs by Drake and Rihanna.
