He’s toured the world with the likes of Philly Joe Jones, Mickey Roker, Shirley Scott, Don Patterson, Sonny Stitt, Jimmy Smith, Al Grey, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Jimmy Smith, Milt Buckner and dozens of others. “He plays tenor saxophone with self-assured flair and gorgeous depth in a classic style,” said Jazz Times. Bootsie Barnes. Truly an original. And a legend.
