Jazz Composers' Symposium: Chuck Owen & the Jazz Surge

Event Type: Symposium
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
Sponsored in conjunction with the Tampa Jazz Club

USF’s Distinguished Professor of Jazz Studies and nationally respected educator is equally 
recognized for his unique compositional voice; one steeped in the jazz tradition but drawing on a 
diverse array of influences from contemporary classical to American folk/roots music, Latin, and funk. 
He has released 5 recordings with the 18-piece Jazz Surge, the last two of which were nominated 
for Grammy Awards.  Described as "riotous and joyous" (JazzTimes), "muscular" (Downbeat), and 
"deserving of universal attention" (All Music Guide), the Surge has worked with an incredible array of 
prominent guests: from Gerald Wilson, Benny Golson, & Slide Hampton to Randy Brecker, Chick 
Corea, & Dave Liebman.  Chuck has been named a Guggenheim Fellow as well as serving as current 
President of ISJAC and past-President of IAJE.
