Meet our Directors

Dr. Jamie Ousley

 

DR. JAMIE OUSLEY has been one of the most in-demand bassists in South Florida since he moved to Miami in the fall of 1998 from his native home of Tennessee. After earning his doctorate from the University of Miami Frost School of Music in 2008, he was appointed Assistant Professor of Jazz Bass at Florida International University and continues to teach and perform world-wide. Jamie’s dynamic contributions to our community include creation of the FIU Festival of Jazz Bands featuring South Florida high school musicians, founding Executive Director of the Jazz Archive, a nonprofit which creates video recordings of local jazz artists, and Founder and Director of the Miami Jazz Cooperative. Jamie’s most recent CD, "A Sea of Voices," was produced to benefit a nonprofit project committed to preservation of the environment.
