An extroverted trombone stylist best-known for his association with Duke Ellington, Buster Cooper’s witty design (which sometimes involves striking repeated, humorous high records towards the end of a track) is usually a joy to listen to. In early stages, he used Nat Towles’ territory music group in Tx. Cooper caused Lionel Hampton in 1953, is at the Apollo Theater’s home band for just two years, used Benny Goodman, and created the Cooper Brothers Music group with his sibling Steve on bass. The trombonist experienced plenty of single space with Duke Ellington’s Orchestra from 1962-1969, spent amount of time in Florida, and relocated to LA in 1973, where for another couple of years he used many regional jazz orchestras, like the Juggernaut and Expenses Berry’s L.A. Music group. Strangely enough, the vibrant Buster Cooper hasn’t yet had the chance to business lead his very own record date.
