Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. 5/4/1934. – New York. 12/9/2000.

Fratello del trombettista Tommy, ha interpretato il lato caldo e sensuale del sassofono moderno, partendo dalla lezione del grande Gene Ammons. Incoraggiato da suo padre Thomas anche egli sassofonista che ha fatto parte dei Savoy Sultan, ha studiato prima il violoncello e poi il sassofono tenore. Ha debuttato nel 1950 con Lowell Fulson, ha suonato poi con Ray Charles, Tadd Dameron e Earl Bostic. Nel 1956 ha fatto parte, insieme al fratello Tommy, del quintetto di Max Roach. Ha sposato l’organista Shirley Scott e hanno spesso lavorato insieme. In seguito si è dedicato più alla musica commerciale e è ritornato al jazz nelle registrazioni con Jimmy Smith, George Benson, Ron Carter, Buddy Rich, Duke Jordan, Art Taylor, Horace Parlan, Les McCann, Kenny Burrell, Donald Byrd, Duke Pearson, Horace Silver, Jimmy McGriff, Freddie Hubbard, Gene Harris. Sassofonista profondo conoscitore del bop anche se si rifà a modelli anteriori. Molto bravo nelle ballad, molto credibile nel soul jazz e nel blues, in possesso di una voce calda. Egli va annoverato nel gruppo di sassofonisti storici del movimento dell’hard bop, bop, oggi votatosi alla fusion.
