Jazz legend brings groove to kids

Buster Williams, 70, is a living legend of jazz, a sideman who has jammed with the likes of Miles Davis, Count Basie, Herbie Hancock, Sarah Vaughan, and Nancy Wilson. In 2009, Williams and his wife sold their brownstone in Harlem and moved to an apartment on the first floor of an old Victorian in Merchantville.

Still touring the world with his own quartet, Williams started a music camp last summer with 22 students, including one from Germany, and hopes to do the same this summer and then open the Buster Williams International School of Music in South Jersey next year. He's looking for a building and funding. http://bit.ly/10hSgYt
