“Louisiana” With Mike Owen’s “New Orleans Specialists”



After ten years in New Orleans followed by ten years in Denmark leading his own bands, trombonist Mike Owen is back home playing red hot New Orleans Jazz in the UK. 

This YouTube features him gigging at Tad Newton’s Walnut Tree Jazz Club, Blisworth, Northants, along with Karl Hird (clarinet/sax), Rosco Birchmore (bass), Brian Mellor (banjo) and “Baby Jools” (drums) on Sunday, 21st December. (All YouTubes best viewed in HD).

Quite a quintet, so why not call them “Mike Owen’s New Orleans Specialists”!

Welcome home, Mike! And thanks for sharing a few yarns with me about your times in New Orleans.
