For a decade, tenor saxophonist, composer, bandleader and educator Charles Owens has been leading a trio with bassist Andrew Randazzo and drummer Devonne Harris (aka DJ Harrison). The Charles Owens Trio has celebrated this tenure with a new release, 10 Years. Chris Pearson in the Times of London wrote in his review, "The first thing you notice about Charles Owens is the tone. The American tenor saxophonist is a player of irresistible warmth." Indeed. We visit with Charles Owens and hear selections from the trio's new disc in this hour of Jazz at 100 Today!
