Katisse is a seamless blend of jazz, hip-hop, pop, and world music, mainly because all of these style are filtered through one unique musician. Playing tenor, alto, soprano saxophones, flute and alto flute, Katisse Buckingham combines heavyweight musicianship with poetry and spoken word to create a flow that often leaves listeners in awe. Widely known as the flute player from the "Jazz Flute" scene in the film Anchorman, Katisse's musical vision has to be experienced to be believed.
The LA Weekly had this to say;
”Katisse Buckingham leads a double musical life, most often as one of the most sought-after woodwind players. But on the last Thursday of every month, he leads his own band in a unique mix of jazz, soul, hip-hop & rap, beatboxing his way through flutes and leaving even seasoned studio musicians often in astonishment.”
