From 1931 to 1936 Hayes played in and arranged for the Mills Blue Rhythm Band. From 1937 to 1941 Hayes again led his own orchestra; Kenny Clarke was among his sidemen.

His most popular recording was a version of the song "Stardust", recorded in 1938. He moved to California in 1942, and led a quartet there for most of the decade. Following this he played solo, continuing to perform live into the 1970s. Hayes recorded under his own name in 1937-38, 1946, 1947, 1948, and 1960. Read more on Last.fm.
