Biography

American musician, composer and jazz great. He was mostly self taught on the piano and cornet from early childhood. In 1923, he became the star of "The Wolverines," a group that played in New York's Roseland. He played with Charlie Straight's commercial orchestra in 1925, and spent time sitting in with a pioneer black artist in Chicago, along with various orchestra jobs. Appreciated by only a handful during his life, he became a legend after his death, leaving a legacy of performances unmatched in subtlety, finesse and blended with sensitivity. He died of pneumonia on 7 August 1931 at age 28 in Long Island, New York.
