Rebecca has just released her new Jazz Album titled, "Rebecca Jenkins and Her Trio, Live at the Cellar" Please read more below and follow the links to listen and download.
Rebecca Jenkins and Her Trio, Live at The Cellar was recorded at Vancouver’s storied Cory Weeds’ Jazz Cellar in February 2014, just weeks before the club closed its doors for the last time. It was a magical evening for both the musicians and audience as Rebecca and the trio swung and grooved their way through two sets of jazz standards, cool covers, and haunting originals, every tune jumping with soulfulness and joy. Backed by her long-time trio this is Rebecca’s third solo album, after Blue Skies (2008) and Something’s Coming (2012), and adds to a body of work that includes albums with the Parachute Club, Jane Siberry, and Kevin Breit, among others, as well as a soundtrack album from the film Bye Bye Blues in which Rebecca played a 1940s jazz singer, a role for which she won a Genie Award for best actress. That film helped launch Rebecca’s career as one of Canada’s most beloved and accomplished film and television actors, with numerous starring and award-winning roles over the years (alongside the likes of Tim Robbins, Kevin Spacey, and Ellen Page), and most recently in Sarah Polley’s critically-acclaimed Stories We Tell (2012).
