Los Angeles based jazz drummer/composer, Peter Buck, announces the release of his third album as a leader. “Smells Like Music” combines soulful jazz melodies and folk infused grooves with risk-taking improvisations featuring the incredible musicianship of Jamieson Trotter-piano, Jamelle Adisa-trumpet, Lyman Medeiros-bass, and Buck-drums.
This has been a working band for five years, so all the music was composed specifically for these musicians. Every composition represents a personal connection to Buck’s family and life experiences.
1. Leave it Behind-My brother, suffering from muscular dystrophy, looking forward to heaven when he would get a new body.
2. Smells Like Music-Love of a family joke between my wife and son.
3. Wisco?-So many trips back to my birthplace to take care of my mother with a deluge of mixed feelings about Wisconsin.
4. Peter Buck!-Written by our pianist as a theme song for the band
