For Charles Owens, "it's all about jazz"

Greg Burk meets the saxophonist Charles Owens who just came back from Europe where he toured with the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and is rehearsing with the Cal State L.A.'s Luckman Jazz Orchestra which he conducted for the last four years (Los Angeles Times). Owens talks about the importance of teaching jazz, about pianist Horace Tapscott, about John Coltrane and about mastering playing two instruments at once and circular breathing all of which he does to find those "undiscovered notes and sounds".
