Mundy was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and gained his arranging skills in the 1920s while playing with local bands led by Erskine Tate, Tommy Miles, and Carroll Dickerson. In 1932 he joined Earl Hines for four years, originally as a saxophonist, but swiftly developing a reputation as an arranger. After selling one of his arrangements to Benny Goodman in 1935, Goodman hired him away from Hines, and Mundy became Goodman's staff arranger. Mundy was also a significant supplier of arrangements to Count Basie (from about 1940 to 1947), as well as writing for Gene Krupa, Paul Whiteman, Dizzy Gillespie (in 1949), Charlie Spivak, Harry James, and many others. He briefly led his own band in 1939, but after World War II he returned to arranging for Basie, James, and others. In 1959, Mundy moved to Paris, where he was musical director for Barclay Records, returning to the U.S.

in the 1960s. He continued an active career as a writer into the 1970s. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
