Trumpeter with the first outings of Blood, Sweat and Tears ('68-'73), later going on to a solid career in jazz as soloist and leader of the Manhattan Jazz Quintet. An obit: Most frequently a sideman but had his own very good recordings too: Solid info on his Site--don't think of me as ghoulish for linking:

* Group bio and discog: and << Large catalog on Japanese labels--mostly available at the Usual Suspect but as imports, pricey
