Dudley Owens was born in 1979 and fell in love with jazz at an early age, excelling on the saxophone almost as soon as he picked it up. Dudley has had the privilege of performing or recording with the likes of Bunky Green, Slide Hampton, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Antonio Hart, Donald Harrison, Willie Pickens, Smokie Norful, Deandre Patterson, Steve Turre, the Dells, and The Chicago Jazz Ensemble—among many others. Hear his music here.
