Biography

Take three musicians from such separated places as McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania,
Omaha, Nebraska and Bannes, Cuba, and you’re bound to have a wide variety of
tastes and influences. Put them together, giving each one freedom of expression,
and you’ll have a potpourri of surprises. This is the case with the John Buzon Trio,
one of the hottest dance combos in Southern California.

The group has been playing to capacity audiences for two years at a roadside
spot sixty miles east of Los Angeles. Many of the patrons drive that far or farther

to try out the latest fancy steps, because they know there isn’t a request the
group can’t fill — from a cha cha to a polka or waltz.

Leader of the group is John Buzon. This talented young organist comes up with
some of the most astounding orchestral effects yet produced on the Hammond.
Saxophonist Loren Holding, with his Cuban background, is responsible for the Latin
American treatment of the great standards. He doubles on clarinet or flute and
lends a hand with the maracas, aiding drummer Jack Russell to maintain their driving
beat on the cha chas and mambos.

Neither the boys individually nor the group as a whole consider themselves jazz
musicians, but rather swing musicians with a drive. But the fact is they do
generate some really great and enthusiastic jazz, both on the torchy ballads and
the sizzling swingers.
