An excellent, if derivative, alto and soprano saxophonist and sibling of keyboardist and arranger Milt Buckner, Ted Buckner was a reliable session player and soloist. He wasn’t probably the most imaginative nor daring participant, but his lines, shade and phrasing had been efficient, as was his period and general technique. Buckner used local rings in St. Louis and briefly with McKinney’s Natural cotton Pickers. He was in Jimmie Lunceford’s orchestra from 1937 to 1943, experiencing his greatest reputation. Buckner proved helpful in combos within the Detroit region, touring Europe within the middle-’70s. He performed on many Motown periods, while also leading his very own groupings and co-heading a huge music group with Jimmy Wilkins. Buckner regularly caused McKinney’s Natural cotton Pickers until his loss of life. There are always a handful of his periods on Aircheck CDs, in addition to some schedules he used Child Ory on Vogue.
