Biography / Administrative History

Phillip Eugene Jenkins (1917-1993) was born on August 9, 1917 in Sacramento, California to Aaron Arthur Jenkins and Grace Evelyn Grubbs Jenkins. Jenkins interest in music began at an early age and music was encouraged by his parents. His mother organized Jenkins and his siblings into a family ensemble accompanied by their cousin Clarissa Hundley on piano. The ensemble, known as the Junior Concert Orchestra, performed at churches and venues in the Sacramento area. While attending Stanford Junior High School and Sacramento High School, Jenkins continued to pursue music playing the cornet and tuba in the marching band and as a member of the high school glee club.
After briefly attending Sacramento Junior College, Jenkins left school and began working as a porter and window dresser while occasionally playing with big band orchestras in the 1930s. He had short stints playing with the Dick Jurgens Orchestra, Louis Armstrong, and Lionel Hampton before an accident with a power saw damaged his hand, limiting his ability to play musical instruments. In 1941, he was hired by the California Department of Employment as an employment security trainee. After serving two years in the armed forces during World War II, Jenkins returned to the California Department of Employment where he worked until his retirement in 1976.
Beginning in 1968, Jenkins became active in jazz preservation with the establishment of the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society. He was active in the society’s activities and in the creation of the Sacramento Dixieland Jubilee, an international jazz festival held in Sacramento, California beginning in 1974. He was an active volunteer for the Jubilee over the next twenty years, and was eventually inducted into the Jubilee Hall of Fame in 1987 and served as the Jubilee’s Emperor of Jazz in 1991. His knowledge of jazz and personal collection of jazz recording led him to a radio career beginning in 1974, when he began a weekly jazz radio program, “Sacramento Classic Jazz” on the California State University radio station KXPR and subsequently on the university’s new jazz station KXJZ. His weekly radio program continued to air until shortly before his death on February 10, 1993.
