Event details

Heralded as a "powerhouse of a showman" (Glide Magazine), a "legitimate jazz triple threat" (Critical Jazz) and a drummer who "take[s] a back seat to no one" (The New York Times), performer, producer and educator Ulysses Owens Jr. goes the limit in the jazz world and beyond.
 
One of the most sought-after drummers of his generation, Owens sets the mark. From Grammy-Award winning performances with Christian McBride's acclaimed Trio and Big Band to world tours with Kurt Elling and Joey Alexander, Owens's artistic command of percussion has earned him positions in some of the most successful jazz ensembles of the 21st century. Owens's reverence for tradition distinctly manifests in his straight-away playing style, but it is the versatility of his talent-his unique ability to manipulate texture and create penetrating musical shapes-that attracts the attention of jazz's heavy hitters.
 
 
  
"Olatuja possesses a special instrument: a full-bodied tone, precise pitch and personal engagement at the lowest whisper or highest wail."
-Downbeat
 
Praised by the New York Times as "a singer with a strong and luscious tone and an amiably regal presence on stage", Alicia Olatuja has been astounding audiences with her exquisite vocals, artistic versatility and captivating demeanor. She first came into the national spotlight in 2013, whilst performing as the featured soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration. Shortly thereafter, she assembled her own jazz-based ensemble and recorded her first solo album, Timeless (2014).
