Finally, at last, I've been waiting months for this. The first Buck's Vibe was a great CD, neo hard bop, and one of my favorite jazz CDs the year it came out. For his second effort, Peter has substituted the horns with the world's greatest guitar player (!... well, he's damn good). Willis Clow now fills out the quartet, and this addition allows the group to explore other directions from it's jazz core. Some vocal jazz from Peter's daughter, some well done "smooth" jazz tunes, some raucus rock guitar breaks, even a little Booker T and the MGs R&B stylings. All in all a nice variety of sounds excellently played by top flight musicians. The new CD is available from CDBaby and on iTunes. Check it out!
The Buck's Vibe group also plays regularly at Steamer's in Fullerton, one of the best known jazz clubs in SoCal. They will be there for a special Leap's Year performance on the 29th of Feb.
