Jazz At JW3: Judith Owen
Welsh songstress with an all-star band
Ebb and Flow, the new album from Judith Owen, explores the duality of the human condition. The Welsh singer-songwriter, famed for her '70s troubadour sound, is backed by a stunning band that features drummer Russ Kunkel, bassist Lee Sklar and guitarist Waddy Wachtel. Having played on landmark albums by James Taylor and Joni Mitchell, Wachtel is worth the admission alone, while Owen's exquisite songwriting never ceases to delight.
"One of the albums of the year."
