World mentions keyboard player Paul Buck

Paul, like Terry Pascoe,

has served him well over the years; indeed he is recognised by many
musicians to be one of the top keyboard players in the UK. Paul
was musical director for the major band Wall Street Crash
for six years. He has also worked with The Berlin Orchestra
and the internationally famous Count Basie Orchestra.
On the jazz front Paul has worked with many major artistes including
Art Farmer, Spike Robinson, Peter

He has worked with an absolute galaxy of stars as a cabaret musical
director and session
musician, and has several TV appearances to his name.
now lives in Cheltenham in Gloucestershire where he is still very
active in the local jazz scene. In the mid-to-late 1970s, he fronted
the Paul Buck Trio who used to play jazz at venues like the
Bowden Hall Hotel in Gloucestershire on a regular basis. In the
late 1980s, he fronted the Paul Buck/Gerry Williams Quintet.
Paul is part of the Tim
Ward Jazz Trio (where he is credited as being 'a great
jazz pianist') - check their website for gig dates. He also plays
locally with The APO Band alongside Pete Tantrum,
Mark Howell and Clive Miller; often at the Venue Jazz Club in Cheltenham.
Paul also has a residency at the Donnington
Valley Hotel in Newbury playing light music and classical jazz.
