The Glenn Jenks Projects
Beginning in 2016, this 3-year long journey began as a personal project to compile, transcribe and edit the complete ragtime works for piano of American composer and pianist: Glenn Jenks (1947-2016). Not realizing the magnitude of archival material by this great musician, the folio grew into a 300-page compilation with a Foreword by legendary composer and pianist Max Morath, personal stories by those to whom Jenks had dedicated rags, and a remarkable collection of nearly 40 masterworks for keyboard: One-Steps, Two-Steps, Classic Rags, Cake Walks, Novelties, Tangos, Waltzes, etc.
During the compilation process, an idea began to take hold with Robinson: resurrect the Ragtime Revues that Jenks himself once produced and hosted on stage at the Camden Opera House in Camden, Maine back in the 1990s to sold out audiences. But this time – in honor of his colleague and friend – rename the Revue: The 1st Annual Glenn Jenks Ragtime Revue. Almost 30 years to the day (October 12, 1989 – October 5, 2019) from when Jenks himself launched his very first Harvest Ragtime Revue, Robinson premiered his Revue to a sold out audience in the same Opera House to benefit the Glenn Jenks Musical Scholarship.
