The two artists recently came together on David Sanborn's new web series Sessions 2, performing with David's band and having an in depth conversation with the sax master. Sanborn says about his guests, “Michael and Brian‘s voices are so complementary, and they seamlessly blend together… It seems like they’ve been doing this for years." And about the talent of Owens? "What Brian brought to the day was an easy grace...a natural, unexpected power and intensity...that was electric when we were all playing together.”

Check out Session 2 below. It makes for a compelling watch.
