Today’s featured video is a live performance from Matt Owens, with the song “Mouse Song,” from his debut album The Aviators’ Ball. Owens’ large ensemble is a mix of modern jazz and classical, vocal and instrumental pieces, and includes a string quartet and wind quintet. It was my Album of the Week for the most recent This Is Jazz Today recommendations column.
Pretty much any video that takes place in a cavernous room full of stained glass windows is gonna get featured on this site. Obviously it doesn’t hurt if it features a beautiful song from a beautiful album. Read more about The Aviators’ Ball–> LINK
Here’s that video…
Matt Owens also put together a promotional video for the album featuring an album track accompanied by black & white film footage. It’s pretty cool. Go check it out on Matt’s YouTube page (LINK).
Have a great weekend!
