Album Notes
The prolific Calvin Owens is back with his multi-faceted orchestra,entertaining us, amazing us, and moving us. This new recording splendidly documents his latest collaborations, compositions and arrangements and it
demonstrates once again what Calvin's fans have long known: the maestro is a man of expansive musical vision.

Making this disc a special treat, Calvin features an impressive cast of guest artists from his hometown, Houston, Texas. Supported by the consummate musicianship of the savvy players in his large ensemble, there are vibrant appearances by veteran saxophonist Grady Gains, as well as
vocal leads by the passionate Trudy Lynn, the impeccable Gloria Edwards and the brilliant Leonard "Low Down" Brown. And when he's not finessing that trumpet, Calvin himself delivers some of the best singing on record to date.

Calvin Owens has been named for the second year in succession to be Most Outstanding Blues Musician by the Living Blues Magazines' Critics Awards in the category of sax, trumpet, or horn section.

Great Contemporary Big Band; A New Favorite
Calvin brings us a contemporary big band concept that's subtle as well as current. I love this album. The singer does a great job too. Arrangements to his tunes are original.
