Bunky Green

Bunky Green is a jazz musician and educator. Born April 23, 1935, he was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, where he played the alto saxophone, mainly at a local club called "The Brass Rail."His first big break came when he was hired in New York City by Charles Mingus as a replacement for Jackie McLean in the 1960s. His brief stint with the eccentric bass player made a deep impression. Mingus' sparing use of notation and his belief that there was no such thing as a wrong note had a lasting influence on Green's own style.
