He was also able to attend jazz workshops instructed by the celebrated jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.
Years later, Buff worked with the Prince of Gospel, Pastor John P. Kee and was featured as a soloist on the Strength and New Divine Destiny projects. This extraordinary artist has worked with Calvin Richardson, and performed with Willie Clayton, Dave Hollister, KimWaters and Miles Jaye. He's headlined for numerous artists including Alex Bugnon, Ben Tankard, Shirley Caesar, Helen Baylor, The Williams Brothers, Charles Wollfork Angela Christie, the SOS Band, Jasmine Sullivan, Kevon Edmonds of the group After 7, Faith Evans, Walter Beasley, Boney James and Glenn Lewis.
