From one of the most powerful drummers in jazz today who is has released a big band album, we start the 717th Episode of Neon Jazz with Ulysses Owens, Jr. and a tune off his latest CD Soul Conversations. As is the case with all Neon Jazz shows, we trace the history of influences for each artist. For Ulysses, he was swayed heavily by Miles Davis and we hear the song "Limbo" from the trumpet master. We also hear from some quality voices in jazz include Andy James and Karrin Allyson. We also dig into some cats from Ireland in Gediminas Karkauskas and wrap all of this up from a European talent in Nik Bärtsch. Enjoy the show, my friends.
