John Lamkin is something of an institution when it comes to jazz along the I-95 corridor. He’s not only a veteran educator, a former instructor at University of Maryland and the head of an impressive jazz family; he’s also a fabulous trumpeter and a stalwart of the scene. His “Favorites” Quintet is devoted to playing enchanting arrangements of standards as well as originals influenced by Art Blakey and other leaders of the hard-bop era.
