After working as a jazz bassist for a number of leading British jazz combos led by Dick Morrissey, Tony Crombie and Ronnie Scott in the late 50s and early 60s, he joined Cyril Davies and Alexis Korner to form the original line-up of Blues Incorporated.
TONTO's Expanding Head Band
He later went on, with Robert Margouleff, to form the duo TONTO's Expanding Head Band, a project based around a unique combination of synthesizers. The duo were closely associated with Stevie Wonder’s multiple Grammy awards-winning Talking Book (1972), sharing the Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical award as well as collaborating on, and producing other Wonder "classics" such as Music of My Mind, Innervisions and Fulfillingness' First Finale.
Their unique sound made them highly-sought after and they went on to collaborate with, amongst others, Quincy Jones, Bobby Womack, The Isley Brothers, Billy Preston, Gil Scott-Heron and Weather Report, Stephen Stills, The Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason, Little Feat, Joan Baez and Steve Hillage.
