Green Bay, WI: Franciscan Sisters’ July featured song for young adults is “Hymn of the Tides” by Jaime Ousley. It is available as a free download at Franciscanized World.
Composer Jaime Ousley, a Miami based ascending jazz bassist and composer, reflected that “As I continue to learn to be a “jazz” composer, I find the most peace and satisfaction in my compositions when I can let the music that’s in my heart out into the world. This hymn-style of music is planted deep in my heart, so when it comes out, it feels very honest to me. “Hymn of the Tides” is inspired by the gentle rhythms of the sea.”
Jaime has performed with a diversity of esteemed artists, including Ira Sullivan, Eddie Higgins, Arturo Sandoval, George Shearing, James Moody and Maria Schneider. He has been one of the most in-demand bassists in south Florida since he moved to Miami in the fall of 1998 to attend graduate school in the prestigious Jazz program of the University of Miami. He is currently the Professor of Jazz Bass at Florida International University
