Unlike jazz, where names such as Louis Armstrong, Freddie Hubbard, and Miles Davis easily come to mind, trumpeters -- apart from the legendary W.C. Handy -- have not played a central part in creating the mythos of the Blues. Long time B.B. King band member and arranger Calvin Owens takes a step toward rectifying that situation with this CD. The Houston, Texas native Owens, recently relocated to his home town, has formed his own blues orchestra and on 'True Blue' uses twenty-four (count 'em) musicians all told, with special guest appearances from luminaries such as Johnny Clyde Copeland and B.B. King himself, singer B.J. Scott and sax player David 'Fathead' Newman
