Paul Buck
Wurzels live keyboard player (19??s)

Mervyn Hancock's book Wurzel's World mentions keyboard player Paul Buck as one of the musicians 'who have supported the band over the years'. Paul, like Terry Pascoe, was drafted into the The Wurzels to augment their sound on stage but never recorded with them. Sadly I have no details as to when he was a Wurzel.

Paul is another jazz man, whose expertise on the piano and keyboards 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 King, Kenny Baker and Jim Mullen. 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.

Paul 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. Nowadays 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.
