Tribute to Buster Cooper

Ämnen i inlägg

For 18 years, Bill Saxonis – a long-term member of The Duke Ellington Society, New York, an eminent Ellington scholar and a frequent presenter at the Ellington Study Group conferences  – has celebrated Duke Ellington’s birthday with an  annual four-hour  program on radio station WCDB (90.9-FM) in Albany, New York.

In his program last year, Saxonis included a nice tribute to Buster Cooper, who passed away in 2017.

He met Cooper at the Ellington ’08 conference  in London and got the opportunity make a long interview with him.

This is included in the program together with musical examples from Cooper’s time with Ellington. There is also a duet beetween Cooper and John Lamb from the  Ellington ’08 conference.
