To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Fordham's Bronx African American History Project, trumpeter and flugelhorn player Jimmy Owens composed a new piece called "The Bronx Suite." Owens is a world-renowned musician who has worked with artists who don't require a last name: Duke, Dizzy, and Miles, to name a few. Owens performed on April 6, at 8:30 p.m. the McGinley Center on Fordham's Rose Hill campus to more than 200 spectators.
