Enamored by the 1950s, 60s and 70s jazz quintets led by At Blakey, Horace Silver, Miles Davis and many others, Dr. Lamkin's "Favorites" Jazz Quintet specializes in presenting a repertoire of "straight ahead" jazz standards and originals. The name "Favorites" refers to “jazz music” that he prefers to play, as well as the many local musicians he selects to perform in his band due to their exceptional musical artistry and depths of friendship. His group serves as a platform for area musicians who yearn, as he does, to play "straight ahead jazz."
Dr. Lamkin received the "2014 Jazz Heroes Award" from the Jazz Journalist Association for having a significant impact on jazz music in the Baltimore community, and in 2018 he received the “Giants Among Us Award” from Quincy Philips and Brian Davis for “Significant Contributions to the Music Landscape in Baltimore. Also in 2018, he was selected for inclusion on the Maryland State Arts Council’s (MSAC) Performing Artists Touring Roster.
