Charles Owens New York Art Ensemble: Plays the Music of Henry Warren, 1980

This record has a great mix of sounds. The band, and Owens in particular, use a lot of different textures but also play pretty straight ahead most of the time. The group sounds really comfortable together and the rhythm section especially stood out to me. Named for New York but recorded in LA.
Ray Brown, bass
Roy McCurdy, drums
Charles Owens, flute and sax
James Newton, flute (2)
George Cables, piano
Red Callender, tuba
