JAZZ | Clay Jenkins 

Right out of college, trumpeter Clay Jenkins earned his stripes with the Stan Kenton Orchestra. He went on to tour with Harry James, Buddy Rich, and Count Basie before becoming a professor at the Eastman School of Music. But that didn't mean leaving the road. Jenkins still holds a chair in the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and he's recorded with greats like Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, Dr. John, and Diana Krall. When he takes the stage at Hatch Hall he'll be joined by guitar great Gene Bertoncini and rising star bassist Ike Sturm. They've just recorded a CD with tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Henry Mancini, and Neal Hefti, and you can be sure they'll be playing a few.

Clay Jenkins performs Tuesday, November 5, 8 p.m. at Hatch Recital Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs St., $10 (free with UR ID), esm.rochester.edu, 274-1100.
