He was part of the celebrated nonet on the first session of Miles Davis' Birth of the Cool. Although Haig became known for his distinctive and pioneering bebop style, he in fact spent much of his career playing in non-jazz contexts.

His work was the subject of a revival in the 1970s. He led his own small group, Al Haig Trio, one of whose last concerts (in London, 27th May 1982) was released as Bepop Live credited to the University College School All Stars. Read more on Last.fm.
