About Michael Buckley:
Regarded as the most important and influential musician on the Irish jazz scene, saxophonist / flautist and composer Michael Buckley has been playing professionally since the age of six when critics hailed him as a child prodigy. Born in Dublin city in 1971 Michael first came to prominence on an International level when, aged 10, he played flute with the legendary saxophonist George Coleman in the National Concert Hall. Though largely self-taught, his obvious talent has beendeveloped by his father Dick Buckley, and such legends as Milt Hinton. Buckley has found his own unique voice playing both on saxophone and flute and continues to compose & perform his unique and exciting music.
‘A Talent that must be heard’ :: The Irish Times
“The news that saxophonist Michael Buckley has embarked on a new Thursday night residency in the centre of Dublin will be music to the ears of many. The city has been without a regular session of this quality since the passing of Louis Stewart, and for those with a taste for the post-bop of Coltrane, Henderson and Brecker, Buckley’s new quartet, Dublin Standard Time – with extravagantly talented Venezuelan pianist Leopoldo Osio, and the A-team rhythm section of bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady – will be required listening.
