As arranger, he has worked with such bands as Ben Bernie's and Charlie Barnet's, and he became associated with the Three Suns as far back as 1948. Also he is well known as conductor of many current recording sessions for major labels, including such names as the aforementioned Four Aces and Sarah Vaughan, Georgia Gibbs, Patti Page,Vaughn Monroe, and others. Among his compositions are Give Me the Right, It's Dawn Again, Tell Me Why, Bright Red Convertible, and other popular tunes.
