Originally a trombone / tuba player, John Kirby switched with success to bass in 1930 in the [a=Fletcher Henderson]'s Orchestra.
He gained success in the end of the '30s with his own sextet, previously named "The Onyx Club Boys", with occasional vocals provided by his (at this time) wife [a=Maxine Sullivan].
After World War II his career declined and he died before a planned comeback.
