Roger "Buck" Hill (1927-2017) was a full-time employee of a Washington D.C. post office when his much-acclaimed debut album was released from SteepleChase in 1978. Since then this legendary tenorman has invested more of his time in the musical activities and has regularly brought his band to the enthusiastic European audience. He otherwise performed after work at local live spots, sometimes with visiting artists such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, among others.
"Buck Hill is one of the most notable 'regional' jazzmen in America...SteepleChase albums feature Hill with two different rhythm sections...each winds up with the same result: honest, proficient blowing that has its individual clout." - The Penguin Guide to Jazz
Personnel: Buck Hill (tenor saxophone), Wilbur Little (bass), Billy Hart (drums), Reuben Brown (piano)
