He has performed and recorded his original compositions internationally, including in Paris, Copenhagen, Tokyo, and at the Montreux Jazz Festival. In addition to performing, composing, and arranging jazz, he has written the musical scores for dozens of films including The Art of Dissent, The Healing of Harman, Ocean of Grass, and documentary films for the WGBH-TV (Boston) series The American Experience, the WNET-TV (New York) series American Masters, and other PBS programs. His textbooks The History and Tradition of Jazz (6th ed.), Modern Sounds: The Artistry of Contemporary Jazz (2nd ed.), and The History of Rock and Roll (6th ed.) are used by colleges and universities throughout the country.
