One of the most sought-after drummers of his generation, Ulysses Owens Jr. “take[s] a back seat to no one.” (The New York Times) His reverence for tradition and his unique ability to create penetrating musical shapes has attracted the attention of jazz’s heavy hitters including Wynton Marsalis and Christian McBride. In recent years, Owens Jr. has increasingly focused on education, amplifying the next generation of jazz talent as a professor at The Juilliard School, and showcasing those up-and-coming stars in his Generation Y band.
