   Legendary saxophonist Jimmy Heath performs with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Jazz Ensemble March 27 at a 7 p.m. concert in the Ella Fitzgerald Center for the Performing Arts. 

Director of Bands Dr. John R. Lamkin said he and students are honored to work with a musician of Jimmy Heath’s stature.  “To be around someone of that caliber who has experienced all of the changes in the music industry from the 1940s to the present, is like being around a living encyclopedia of jazz,” he said.
