American jazz trumpeter more famous for his work as composer and arranger especially for Woody Herman and Count Basie.

Born : October 29, 1922, Hastings, NE.

Died : October 11, 2008, Los Angeles, CA.

Began arranging professionally in his teens for Nat Towles. Played trumpet in the early '40s with [a=Bob Astor], [a=Les Lieber], [a=Charlie Barnet], [a=Bobby Byrne], [a=Charlie Spivak], and [a=Horace Heidt]. He joined up with [a=Woody Herman] in 1944 and gained a strong reputation for composing (e.g. "The Good Earth" and "Wild Root") and arranging (e.g. "Woodchopper's Ball" and "Blowin' Up a Storm") while still playing trumpet. He married Herman's vocalist [a=Frances Wayne] in 1945.

From 1950 he wrote dozens of songs for [a=Count Basie] including "Li'l Darlin'", "Cute", "Whirly Bird", "Little Pony" and "Kid from Red Bank". He also led his own band intermittently for a few years in the '50s but from the '60s concentrated on writing TV and film scores, e.g. themes from Batman, Barefoot in the Park, and The Odd Couple.
