Peter Buck

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

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
