Capathia Jenkins & Louis Rosen
One Ounce of Truth
The Nikki Giovanni Songs

Boasting a voice described by The Chicago Tribune as "sweet, smart, sassy and full of soul," songstress Capathia Jenkins has originated roles in Broadway's Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, Caroline, or Change, The Civil War and The Look of Love, and received a Drama Desk nomination for her solo performance in (mis)Understanding Mammy: The Hattie McDaniel Story. Now, on her debut album for PS Classics, ONE OUNCE OF TRUTH, she joins forces with acclaimed songwriter Louis Rosen in a collection showcasing the work of renowned poet Nikki Giovanni. Jenkins' sultry, soaring and heartfelt performances blend with Rosen's music alternately delicate and exultant, and always highly melodic in exploring those most universal of human experiences: friendship, lust, love and loss. Its a jazzy, lush and memorable collection.
