The Wailin' Mailman Buck Hill Live at Montpelier. Buck Hill has played with everyone from Shirley Horn to Kenny Barron to Charlie Byrd. Discovered in the Washington, DC area by Charlie Byrd, Buck played with everyone coming through town. But he would never give up his dayjob as a mailman, thus the nickname, the Wailin' Mailman. He is praised by fans and critics alike as one of great unsung heroes of jazz for his forceful tone, tasteful melodies, and his blue collar work ethic. Truly one of the great tenor players of the modern era.
