A partial list of his touring, residencies and recording as a pianist, arranger and composer would include Mingus, Woody Herman, Gene Krupa Quartet, Elvin Jones, Joe Williams, Clar...k Terry, Henry 'Red' Allen, Bob Wilbur, Bud Freeman, The Sauter-Finnegan Orchestra, The Merv Griffin Show, Vegas Folies Bergere, Tommy Newsome Quartet, Slide Hampton Octet and the Jimmy Cleveland Octet.
