He released Big Homie last summer without any record label or commercial marketing. Still it soared to the top of the iTunes jazz chart, where it lasted nearly a day above Miles Davis’s evergreen album Kind of Blue. “It felt unreal. Lowkey, it felt crazy. I felt the love though,” says Buckner. “That can only happen from a village, and a community of supporters who really believe in what you’re doing. I’m super grateful to have that village.”

Opening Set – Andrew Schwandt Trio

Andrew Schwandt – Tenor Saxophone

Fred Flowerday – Piano/Keys

Haralds Bondaris – Drums

This trio is a new project started in late 2022, and features two of my favorite Twin Cities veteran musicians, Fred Flowerday on keyboard and Haralds Bondaris on drums. The style and compositions draw upon my experience living in New York City, and are reminiscent of some of my favorite groups including the Yellowjackets, Chris Potter’s Underground, and The Brecker Brothers. I’m especially excited about the trio format, which gives us the freedom to follow the music wherever it leads, and every performance is a new and fresh experience!
