Father, bandleader, drummer James “Jimmie” Owens was the guiding force behind the music. Jimmie Owens brought together over 150 years of musical experience with a talented mix of rhythm and style. Growing up in East Saint Louis Ill. Jimmie Owens began his career in music with his brother Hilton Owens. Both brothers came to California in the mid-forties and became involved in the development of that West coast Jazz Sound. As a drummer, Jimmie Owens played in the Big Bands at the famous Central Avenue Dunbar Hotel, Club Alabam and several other locations in the Los Angeles area. The Trio and
Quartet performed at the Parisian Room, The Tiki, Claifornia Club, the Jungle Room some of the swankiest and "swingingest" clubs in Los Angeles. They weren't in Hollywood or Beverly Hills in the 1940's; they were south of downtown, strung along Central Avenue. Jimmie Owens completed his musical journey with his noted trio “The Jimmie Owens Trio + One=” with pianist, organist and composer Mr. Rodger Hamilton Spotts and tenor/alto sax Mr. Robert “Bob” Lacefield and singer Ms. Marylou Marques. This dynamic Trio & Ensemble has always played their own brand of classic jazz and Jimmie produced his last CD “Keeping It Alive” in the early 90's. In the spirit of the GREAT Jimmie Owens and keeping Jazz Music moving forward the JazzZone was birthed.
I find inspiration all around me. We try to make our music representative of our audience, our clients and all generations. I love the energy that so many people enjoy, Jazz, Blues and R&B that's a Move Groove in the Zone.
