The singer-songwriter pours his heart into his lovely piano ballad, “In Time,” which features Jenkins on the keys, Brian Standefer on cello and orchestration by Percefull. Jenkins again stretches musically on the plaintive torch song “Going Down to New Orleans,” with Matt Meli's Minimoog synthesizer giving an even moodier vibe. But the album's sonic highlight, the eight-minute instrumental jam “Ridgemont Street,” is an appealingly rough-hewn showcase for the power trio of Jenkins on guitar, Tommy Munter on bass and Phil Hook on drums.

Jenkins will return to his home state Saturday to play the Red Dirt Mardi Gras at the Arbuckle Ballroom in Davis. For tickets and information, go to

He also will play Feb. 23 at the Wormy Dog Saloon in Bricktown. For information, go to
