Guests Clay Jenkins and Kim Richmond
Perform with Hope Jazz Groups

Posted March 28, 2001

HOLLAND -- Guest artists Clay Jenkins and Kim Richmond will perform with Hope College's Jazz Chamber Ensemble and Faculty Jazz Group on Wednesday, April 4, at 7 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium of Nykerk Hall of Music.

They will also be conducting a jazz clinic on Wednesday, April 4, at 5 p.m., also in Wichers Auditorium.

The public is invited to both events. Admission is free.

With Richmond on alto and soprano saxophones, and Jenkins on trumpet, the pair has toured throughout the country playing jazz clubs, concerts, and university campuses. Both from Los Angeles, the musicians have established reputations as first-rate jazz performers and improvisers.

The "Los Angeles Times" has said, "alto saxophonist Richmond and trumpeter Jenkins have discovered a middle ground between opposing jazz camps, matching sophisticated avant-garde stylings with mainstream sensibilities."

Together they have released two albums: "Range," the first, on the Nine Winds record label, and "Look at the Time," on the Chase Music Group label. They have each also released solo albums, and played on numerous other recordings.

Nykerk Hall of Music is located in the middle of campus, along the former 12th Street between College and Columbia avenues. Additional information may be obtained by calling the college's department of music at (616) 395-7650.
