O’s Notes: Drummer Ulysses Owens Jr. Launches his big band debut with a 19-piece ensemble for Soul Conversations. He hits the ground steaming in a live set recorded at Dizzy’s in New York. It’s an ultra-modern set with tons of energy. The music is heavily punctuated with crisp dynamics and a wealth of lively brass. They perform with a lot of space around the soloist before throttling the power of the full ensemble to the delight of the audience!
