We will celebrate the Holidays throughout December on JAZZ LIVES!!! with CurtJazz. And we kick off our celebration in fine style on Thursday, December 1st with our special guest, trombonist Buff Dillard, who joins us LIVE from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Charlotte Community Radio.
Born into a musical family, Buff exhibited an interest in singing, drums and playing brass instruments at an early age. By the age of twelve, the trombone had become his passion and he decided to focus on mastering the slide. As a student of Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, his gift allowed him to attend the Philadelphia All-City Jazz Academy. While there, he performed with the academy’s band, Pieces of a Dream, and the legendary Count Basie Band. He was also able to attend jazz workshops instructed by celebrated jazz trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis.
As a solo artist, Mr. Dillard has released a total of eight independent projects including his latest album Mr. Bonejazz and his Holiday themed EP Christmas Moments. Buff continues his career as a trombonist, performer, independent international recording artist, and CEO of Buff Dillard Music LLC.
During the show, we will talk about his music, his influences, his current projects, and we’ll play a few tracks from Christmas Moments that will help to get us all in the mood for the Holiday Season so join Buff Dillard and me as we prove that there’s nothing better than “Bone for the Holidays”.
JAZZ LIVES!!! with CurtJazz, airing LIVE every Thursday from 6:00pm to 9:00pm via CharlotteCommunityRadio, CLTCRadio.org, OR the Mixlr app where you can listen and chat with our hosts and guests alike.
