Before Clay Jenkins landed at the Eastman School of Music, where he teaches jazz trumpet, he had been on the road with just about every major jazz orchestra. Groups led by Stan Kenton, Harry James, Buddy Rich, Count Basie — you name it, he played in it. And Jenkins still holds a trumpet chair in the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. But the band he'll be leading in the Faculty Artist series is the school's all-star Faculty Jazz Quartet, featuring Harold Danko, piano; Jeff Campbell, bass; and Rich Thompson, drums.
Clay Jenkins performs Wednesday, July 6, at Miller Center Sproull Atrium, 25 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $10 (free with UR ID). 274-1100; esm.rochester.edu.
