Jamie Ousley Releases “Back Home”

By Kevin Johnson at NoTreble.com:

South Florida bassist Jamie Ousley has released his second solo album, Back Home. The album is a mix of many styles, but the theme comes back to Ousley’s roots in Tennessee.

“I’ve lived away from home for a long time, like so many of us do,” Ousley says, “but my heart is still there in the mountains of Tennessee, and it’s reflected in my music.”

Ousley, who has worked with artists such as Ira Sullivan, Arturo Sandoval, and Benny Golson, recorded the album in Osaka, Japan and Miami, Florida. The other artists on the CD include his trio mates, with Phillip Strange on piano and Larry Marshall on drums. This latest effort is the follow-up to his debut album, O Sorriso Dela, which he released in 2008.
