Album Notes
The CD title actually has a double meaning: 1) Get Ready for what your ears are about to experience, and 2) Get your life Ready, because a (spiritual) train is a comin'. Of course the title track 'People Get Ready' is a jazz/funk rendition of the classic Curtis Mayfield hit. Buford has woven a tapestry of genres that is both stimulating and captivating. From the smooth jazz sounds of "My Heart" and "I'll Be There For You", to the Christian Rock flavor of "Live Your Life", the Rock style of "No More Lies", the neo soul influenced "Thank U", the R&B Funk styling of "I'll Try", the jazz/hip-hop infused "Is It Right?", to the gospel sounding "Holy", and the down home bluesy "Amazing Grace". This CD is not your typical Gospel CD, but offers something for lovers of music regardless of labels.

This CD features some of most gifted musicians in the Houston area:
Andre Venson (Drums, Keyboards); John "Puncho" Williams (Drums); Wayne Gordon (Keyboards); Nick McNack (Bass);
Gary Easter (Bass); Mark Holter (Alto Sax); Jeryl Harper (Alto Sax); Eddie Rojas (Trumpet)

Also featured on this CD are some very talented up and coming young vocalists:
Starr Busby, Kim Williams, Dorian Allen, Sherea Jordan, and D'Rell

Buford-Get Ready
Fantastic, its fresh, inspiring and uplifting, some old school with a new twist, it has been a blessing to listen and feel the annointing on each song, Get Ready will get you ready to enter into a whole new dimension of what "real music" is about, thank you for sharing your gift with the world... the best is yet to come for you


Nice variety of music, if you like instrumentals, jazz, blues....you will LOVE this inspirational album! Well done! The arrangement of "Get Ready" is better than the original! Love the tempo!

Deborah Jennings

A must have!
I always buy CD's from CD Baby.com and my sister Gail Murphy of TX turned me on to this CD. I will definitely purchase. It's nice to have some music that has real meaning. Thanks Gail! Really nice samples, can't wait to hear the entire CD.

Jazzy Gospel Hip hop feel
This album really bridges the gap between all genres of music. Buford has taken us all the way back to a Jazzy version of Amazing Grace and brought to light the East Side of Houston's up and coming Lock Em Up Records. With the different artists he's featured on this album, they provide a smooth compliment to the soulful sounds of his guitar that he's played over the years. This album could literally be featured on every radio station in Houston and it's surrounding area's and not miss a beat. The title Get Ready is very appropriate. You can put this one in, sit back, and get ready for what ever type of evening you like. I'm personally looking forward to future projects from this artist. And whoever that is singing on My Heart, please give that young lady my number! Great Job Mr. Buford!

Get Ready Buford
I enjoyed it so much and felt it was so relaxing and soothing, but had a message to send. A message that inspires everything good in life. The blues in it's finest. This album is definately a hit on my list. It made me feel and think in a positive and inspired way. Great job Buford.
