Heralded as a “powerhouse of a showman” (Glide Magazine), a “legitimate jazz triple threat” (Critical Jazz) and a drummer who “take[s] a back seat to no one” (The New York Times), performer, producer and educator Ulysses Owens Jr. goes the limit in the jazz world and beyond.

Owens’s album, THREE, features bassist Reuben Rogers and vibraphonist Joel Ross. Touring for this album, along with Songs of Freedom and a senior studio album by New Century, will take place in the fall. Owens is consistently in demand for new projects. He remains one of the most sought-after drummers of his generation.

“While Rainey’s evocative, time-morphing and occasionally implosive drumming plays a central role in the musical materiality here, his trio is very much an integrated ensemble.  The commanding component parts are critical to the vibe and behavioral manner and conversational of the whole.  Laubrock is a saxophonist of unusual textural sensitivity and intellectual savvy, who can summon up proper deposits of abandon, knowing restraint and sly references to jazz’ past in the midst of her purely improvisational explorations.  Halvorson, one of the important “avant-jazz” guitarists of her generation, takes the abstracting and deconstructionist influence of, say, Derek Bailey into account in her playing, but has come up with her own way of melding that free-styling painterliness with shards of line and sonics – including tasteful deployment of effects units, a well-placed vibrato effect, ring modulation or distortion blast adding to the range and contemporary relevance of what she does.  Together, they make a refreshing new and not -sentimental kind of beautiful music.” – Josef Woodard; Contributor to Downbeat, Jazz Times and the Los Angeles Times

Growing up in a musical family, Morgan was given his first pair of drumsticks at the age of six months…followed shortly thereafter by a drum set. By six, Morgan had his first saxophone and his instrumental repertoire expanded to many more instruments. Having grown up in such a musical household, Morgan had the good fortune of being exposed to jazz from the Marsalis family, Donald Harrison, Christian Scott, among many others. He has shared the stage with such notables as Nicholas Payton, Ellis Marsalis, Herlin Riley, Jimmy Cobb, Esperanza Spalding, Allen Toussaint, Freddy Cole, Terri Lyne Carrington, Robert Glasper, Russell Gunn, Wallace Roney, and Buster Williams.

Triple Double debuts two encounters on paired instruments: trumpeter Ralph Alessi and cornetist Bynum; and on drums, Tomas and Gerald Cleaver. Additionally, it features Brandon Seabrook and Halvorson, two avatars of contemporary electric guitar. Seen another way, the sextet brings together two longstanding trios: Tomas’s own group with Alessi and Seabrook, and another with his long-time collaborators Halvorson and Bynum. The album features all the possible permutations in a churning group music, highlighting both Tomas’s compositional strengths and the distinct musical personalities of each performer. Through a variety of approaches, including grid patterns, mirrored ensemble play, and a subtle interplay of structure and freedom, Tomas’s compositions offer each musician the chance to display their own formidable technique and vocabulary. The variety of groupings, instrumental shading, and formal contours present a mutable orchestra conforming itself to the composition’s needs.

After 9 years of living in NYC and being an in-demand sideman, Eden has finally decided to record his debut album as a leader. This was a long awaited moment as he has been composing music throughout his life. The title – “YEQUM” is a Hebrew word that stands for “Universe” – This album is the glimpse to Eden’s personal universe. The music on this record is a collection of compositions written over the years. Each composition came from a different place – some are dedicated to people in his life, some to scenes and experiences in his life, and some are about imaginary fables and stories which he invented.
