Saxophonist and composer Tim AuBuchon lived in the Chicago area for six years where he was an active performer and educator. His groups performed at such venues as the Velvet Lounge, the Empty Bottle, and the Chicago Cultural Center. He was selected to attend the David Liebman Saxophone Masterclass in 1997. He was a finalist in the 1998 North American Saxophone Alliance Jazz Solo Competition. Professor AuBuchon received his master's degree from Northwestern University, where he was a graduate assistant in jazz. He received his bachelor of music degree in composition from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He is a former faculty member at Benedictine University and Moraine Valley Community College and has performed with Randy Brecker, John Abercrombie, and Tim Hagans, and numerous others. The debut CD of the Tim AuBuchon Quartet, Bluz fer Mo, received favorable reviews including the following from Marshall Vente on the Jazz Institute of Chicago web page: "In a world of a thousand tenor players Tim stands out with a mature sound and an exceptional concept for improvising....The program is as exciting and personal. (Tim's compositions) show great depth and imagination." Professor AuBuchon has also performed and recorded with Radio Improved, a collective jazz and improvised music group. David Liebman, master saxophonist who performed with Miles Davis and Elvin Jones, had this to say about their album Jump In: "This is really a wonderful two horn group, with intelligent compositions and a well rehearsed rhythm section. In this rather difficult instrumentation, Radio Improved is making some real music. Highly recommended."
