Buck 65

Hello. I'm Buck 65 and this is my bio… I was born with the name Ricardo Terfry. My dad started calling me Buck 65 the day I was born. I don't know why. That's the truth. A lot of stories have been made up about where the name comes from, some of them by me. I've lied about it. But "where does the name come from?" is a boring question. And the truth is, I don't even know myself. I also get asked all the time, "how would you describe your sound?" I don't have a good answer for that either. I could say "hip hop", but a lot of people would disagree with that. Why would they? Well, best I can figure is that it's a very conservative genre and my take on it is very liberal, to say the least. I've long argued that the roots of hip hop music go all the way back to folk and blues �" even minstrel music that pre-dates the birth of both those genres (take a listen to a song called 'The Gypsy' by Emmett Miller to see where I'm coming from, for example)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
