Steve Owen - Stand up Eight

Steve Owen – Stand up Eight

I love this record. Steve put together this killer band to record his killer compositions and arrangements for big band. I rarely like to listen to an album I’ve been part of for fun but there are a few tracks on here that I can’t get enough of (I won’t say which ones.) And Steve gave me a feature of sorts as well – spoken word and trumpet – State of the Union which was hilarious to work on.
