American jazz trombonist.

Born : May 24, 1927 in Detroit, Michigan.

Died : January 23, 1993, Springfield, Massachusetts.

Started out playing more traditional jazz (e.g. with the groups of [a=Benny Carter], [a=Lucky Millinder], and [a=Dizzy Gillespie]) before going on to focus on free jazz in the 1960s and '70s (e.g. with [a=Archie Shepp], [a=Roland Kirk], and [a=John Coltrane]).

He became a Muslim in the '40s and changed his name to Harneefan Majeed, although he later abandoned both the name and religion. He is rarely credited by this name but it is often combined into his real name.
