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, but also a fabulous trumpeter and stalwart of straight-ahead jazz. 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. Two separate sets at 9 and 11 p.m.
