Jazz Musician. Considered one of the greatest British Jazz musicians of all-time, he co-led the "Jazz Couriers" with Tubby Hayes from 1957 to 1959. In 1959 he opened his own Jazz club in London, which soon became world-renowned. He pioneered Jazz music in Britain, working with the likes of Ted Heath, Jack Parnell's band, and he formed his own 9-piece group which ran from 1953 to 1956. He was awarded an Order of the British Empire for his services to Jazz in 1981.
