Bowman has toured and recorded with many artists, including the legendary Carmen McRae, Pat Coil, Freddie Hubbard, Bud Shank and Karrin Allyson. Since moving to Kansas City in the late 80s, he has been a major part of the city’s vibrant jazz scene. He was a faculty member at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Ottawa University and leads the legendary Kansas City group INTERSTRING and various versions of Bowdog.
