In 1974 he did a State Department tour of Africa with Hal Singer. His later work, notably a series of duos with the tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, including the album Goin' Home, is steeped in gospel music. He was recipient of the 2000 Ben Webster Prize given by the Ben Webster Foundation. He died in 2017, in Korsør, Denmark.
