In March 2020, Chuck Owen had planned to kick off a year-long celebration of Jazz Surge with a reunion show at USF Tampa. Considering the date, you can probably imagine what happened to that show.

In December, the composer confirmed that the original 2020 affair was finally going to happen at the same place this week. We’re not sure if there’s going to be a year-long celebration, or maybe even a tour, but considering that the ex-head of the USF jazz program just retired, he has all the time in the world.

Whether he’s making big band albums, or a documentary on how he created them, Owen is a machine, and you don’t want to miss this historic performance on Thursday, March 24 at the USF Concert Hall.
