The Fitzhugh Jenkins Ensemble plays jazz and New World music against a backdrop of red rocks at sunset on the patio of View 180 at Enchantment Resort, Saturday evenings through June 15, 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
These evenings are destined to be a spirited experience heightened by the virtuoso guitarist Fitzhugh Jenkins who grew up in Hawaii, studied music at Berklee School of Music in Boston and with guitar virtuoso Pierre Bensusan in Paris, and recently returned from a month in Buenos Aires where he composed music for his newest CD “Altiplano.”
He’s performed for the Olympic athletes during the Los Angeles Games and in front of crowds in India. He played on the Grammy-nominated Narada CD titled “Passion: Music for Guitar” and portions of his music have aired on ABC, the Oprah Network, and the Discovery Channel.
Take in the views and the world rhythms while enjoying specialty cocktails, including our five famous margaritas, and tapas made for sharing, if you can bear to part with one of the Kobe sliders with carmelized onions and garlic aioli, or the creamy burrata with basil pesto on grilled bread drizzled with olive oil.
Sample selections of Fitzhugh Jenkins’ music from his albums Bedouin Cafe, Blue Guitar, Journey into Yavapai, Mango Man, and Believe.
