Now's the Time: Clay Jenkins
Although his site insists that he's "one of the most sought after jazz trumpeters in the country today," I was unfamiliar with Clay Jenkins until this week. He's performed with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, the Harry James Orchestra and the Count Basie Orchestra. Jenkins is the American Jazz Museum’s Artist in Residence for the second annual Charlie Parker Celebration that began last night.
