Ephraim Owens is one of the hardest-working musicians in Austin, partly because he’s not in town much. A first-call backup player, the trumpeter spends a lot of his time on the road with the likes of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Sheryl Crow, and more. Fortunately, he’s been hanging out in his hometown jazz clubs of late. A mainstay of Monks since the club’s inception, Owens brings his brilliant hard- and post-bop quartet to the stage. We don’t know who’s in the band, but Owens has his pick of the best of the best, so the lineup will be first-rate.
