Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Otis is a good ole fashioned blues-type storyteller. He sings/speaks of many of his experiences including the South in the 1960s, growing up, mama’s girlfriend, kids and education. He doesn’t hold back on his darker moments. This exchange is what the blues is all about. Otis also plays guitar and mandolin. Cassie Taylor (b) adds soft country-like vocals on “Working for the Pullman Company”. There are ten songs, all originals that spell success for Taylor.
