PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The Center for the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will present Marvin Stamm on Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Brodbeck Concert Hall. Stamm will headline the UW-Platteville Jazz Festival Evening Concert with UW-Platteville Jazz 1 and the Festival Big Band.

Throughout his distinguished career, Stamm earned praise for both the art and the craft of trumpet playing. While attending North Texas State University, a school noted for its innovative Lab Band program, Stamm was discovered by Stan Kenton. Upon graduating, Stamm performed with Kenton's orchestra as the jazz trumpet soloist from 1961-62, recording five albums with the orchestra.

Stamm settled in New York City, N.Y., in late 1966, quickly establishing himself as a jazz and studio trumpeter. He performed at key venues with many of the significant players in the business. He gained considerable recognition for his playing with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Duke Pearson Big Band and the Benny Goodman Sextet. In addition to playing with these famous bands, Stamm has been on a worldwide tour with Woody Herman and performed with the legendary Frank Sinatra.

Stamm currently spends his time touring and helping young music students develop their musical talent through jazz education. His involvement in jazz education takes him to universities and high schools across the U.S. and abroad as a performer and mentor.
