Starting on bass in 1951, he played with Max Roach in 1958, then was extremely busy in the early '60s (John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Eric Dolphy, Booker Little). He was also working in several television orchestras between 1962 and 1970.
He became more discreet in the 80s with a more expanding teaching career.
