    Hi Wilmer:

    How was the show? I had the pleasure of seeing him at "Trumpets" in Montclair, Nj about 6 years ago. What a big, beautiful tone!

    Jimmy played a 2 hour set. It cover the entire spectrum of the Music. Trumpet, Bass and Guitar, that was the instrumentation of Jimmy Owens +. His choice of music seemed perfect for the occasion. He played an Ellington medley on flugel. A Dizzy tribute on trumpet. It was a wonderful display of musicianship at the highest level.
    Because of the instrumentation, the total approach was one of a chamber ensemble. The interplay between the players had an almost MJQ awareness. You missed a marvelous set.

    Jimmy is recording an album with Gerald Wilson this week, I can't wait to hear it.

    Jimmy Owens has always been a favorite of mine, as is the great Gerald Wilson. I'll be looking for this when it comes out.



    Thanks Wilmer.
