Jimmy Owens is a 2012 receipient of the National Endowment For The Arts Jazz Master Award for his artistic contributions as an instrumentalist on trumpet and flugelhorn and as a composer and arranger; as well as for his advocacy (with such organizations as the Jazz Foundation of America, Jazzmobile, the Musician’s Union) in efforts to promote proper compensation for jazz musicians, pension funds, health plans and more. During his career he has performed with a Who’s Who of jazz artists, as well as a studio musician performing on numerous commercial jingles, and in the house band led by Billy Taylor on the popular network television show, the David Frost Show.
Jimmy commented on allowing creativity to guide his music. “I never dealt with the fact that ‘that’s a slow blues and we’re not supposed to play that because it’s not pure jazz’ or ‘it has this kind of a beat so we’re not supposed to play it.’ I believe in playing everything.

Lorber comments on his success: ““Success in the music business requires imagination and creativity on the business side as well as the music.”

She comments: “…when you are a jazz improviser, your performance is like a bit of the continuity of your life because improvising music is your life, your everyday life. It’s the life you live continuously for all your years, so when you perform you get a bit of that continuity and share it with a bunch of people. So instead of something you do on a special occasion, it’s something that you live ...”

Mark Rapp abd Derek Bronston discuss the new app they created and their musical pursuits with The Song Project. “We have a very defined sound and whether approaching a jazz standard or a rock anthem, we deliver a mood, sound and feel that is very much about us as a group rather than two jazz musicians trying to be eclectic”
