BOYD LEE DUNLOP, BROTHER OF FAMED JAZZ DRUMMER, FRANKIE DUNLOP, RELEASES DEBUT CD "BOYD’S BLUES,” AFTER A MUSICAL CAREER SPANNING 80 YEARS.
After nearly 80 years as a live musician and mainstay at the storied Colored Musicians Club of Buffalo, NY, Boyd Lee Dunlop will release his debut recording, Boyd’s Blues, on December 10, 2011. Boyd’s Blues swings with a divine cadence, the sound of the long-marinated dreams of a self-taught musician who learned to play upon discovering a discarded and broken piano on the streets of Buffalo, NY in the early 1930’s. Hailing from a musical family, Dunlop’s younger brother, famed jazz drummer Frankie Dunlop, recorded over 100 albums with jazz luminaries such as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Charles Mingus. Boyd’s Blues features Boyd Lee Dunlop on piano, accompanied by Sabu Adeyola on bass and Virgil Day on drums. Dunlop will launch the CD with a special performance of the Boyd Dunlop Trio, co-presented by Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center and the Colored Musicians Club of Buffalo, NY, on December 10, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center at 341 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, NY.
