Masterclass: Jimmy Owens, trumpet
with the GU Jazz Ensemble
Legendary jazz artist Jimmy Owens (trumpet, flugelhorn), who has more than 45 years of experience as a jazz trumpeter, composer, arranger, lecturer, and music education consultant, works with the GU Jazz Ensemble in this masterclass, open to the public for observation. Owens is one of the few trumpeters of his generation who played as a sideman with such extraordinary jazz leaders as Lionel Hampton, Hank Crawford, Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Duke Ellington, Billy Taylor, and the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Band, among others.
Owens is also the featured guest artist on the April 27 Georgetown University Jazz Festival (see related calendar listing).
