''...With River Runs Mr. Owen has proven himself to be a compositional force to be reckoned with.'' -Huffington Post
...The explosive Chuck Owen's Jazz Surge (and Orchestra) serve up a work of art - taking the listener on a tranquil to explosive musical journey...Epic.
‘’River Runs deep, free-flowing into cross-currents, but always moving forward towards it's destination, which is an Ocean of Melody, Sound and Soul….One minute you are floating in a quiet still body of water and next you are rapidly swept up cruising through tumultuous rapids holding on anticipating what will be next…performances are impeccable...Everything about this Concerto is absolutely first rate…’’
- Randy Brecker
