Buck Hill (musician)

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Roger "Buck" Hill (born February 13, 1927, Washington, D.C.) is an American jazz tenor and soprano saxophonist.

Hill began playing professionally in 1943 but held a day job as a mailman in his birthplace of Washington, D.C. for over thirty years. He played with Charlie Byrd in 1958-59, but was only occasionally active during the 1960s. In 1973, he recorded with Washington-area trumpeter Allan Houser.[1] He has recorded copiously as a leader since the 1970s.
