Dennis Owsley

by Jeffrey Carter

We officially inaugurated the Dennis Owsley jazz recording archive at Webster University last evening.  President Stroble provided some brief remarks and then recognized Dennis.  The Man himself spoke a bit in his characteristic and generous fashion.  And then the music played, and what sweet and fun music it was.  My colleagues Paul DeMarinis, Kim Portnoy, Steve Schenkel, and friends were in a world of enjoyment last evening!

Here are some shots from the presentation before the concert:
