He moved to New York City in 1956 and soon after began playing with Charles Mingus's Jazz Workshop in 1957. Among his credits with Mingus is Tijuana Moods.

Later that year he destroyed his instrument and quit music over a fight with Mingus. He did not return to playing until 1962, after which time he formed his own ensemble. He retired again in 1964 and returned to music once more in 1968. Read more on Last.fm.
