Jazz trumpeter and composer Jeff Jarvis will be the featured guest performer in Jamestown Community College's annual spring jazz concert on May 6 in Scharmann Theatre.

Jarvis and members of the Jarvis Quartet will conduct a jazz workshop, free and open to the public, at 6 p.m. The quartet then will perform during the JCC jazz ensemble concert, which begins at 7:30.

JCC's jazz ensemble, directed by Ralph Rasmusson, will perform selections by Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock.

Jarvis' solo recordings have ranked on national charts and won him critical acclaim. His early career as a studio trumpeter encompasses more than 100 albums for artists such as Lou Rawls, Melba Moore and Michael Jackson. He has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia.

He is an adjunct faculty member at University of the Arts in Philadelphia and music director of the Central New York Jazz Orchestra, and has served as vice president of International Association of Jazz Educators. Jarvis is CEO of Kendor Music, the first educational music publisher to provide jazz charts written especially for students.

Admission is $4; $3 for senior citizens and area students and $2 for JCC Faculty Student Association members. Tickets are available in the JCC Box Office, 665-3203, or at the door.
