JAZZ | Clay Jenkins

comment

Before trumpeter extraordinaire Clay Jenkins became a professor at the Eastman School of Music, he'd paid his dues on the road with the jazz orchestras of Stan Kenton, Harry James, Buddy Rich and Count Basie. But he wasn't finished. Just last month, Jenkins played at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, where he still holds a chair in the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. When he hits the Kilbourn Hall stage, he'll be playing many of his own tunes with fellow Eastman faculty members Dariusz Terefenko on piano, Bob Sneider on guitar, Jeff Campbell playing bass and Rich Thompson behind the drums.

Clay Jenkins will perform on Wednesday, October 10, 7:30 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs Street. $10 (free with UR ID). 274-1100. eastmantheatre.org; clayjenkins.net.
