Beginning in the church and adhering to the concept of a higher calling as a defining principle of his musicianship, Ulysses Owens Jr. has made his life as much an exercise in nurturing great musicians as it is an effort to find and claim his own place as a drummer. Between drum fills, stages, and studio takes, Owens works to uplift the youth of his hometown in Florida, and imbue the same sense of community that raised him into a slightly splintered jazz scene in New York City. Recognizing his own genius in the company of mavericks and wunderkinds is not enough for Owens, who feels that they should all recognize and celebrate those qualities in one another.
