Buddy Childers Biography (Wikipedia)

Marion "Buddy" Childers (February 12, 1926 – May 24, 2007) was an American jazz trumpeter, composer and ensemble leader. Childers became famous in 1942 at the age of 16, when Stan Kenton hired him to be the lead trumpet in his band.

As Childers later told Steve Voce:

Childers worked with Kenton for years, and also performed with Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Les Brown, Charlie Barnet, Dan Terry, and others. He worked on television programs and in films, and put together a big band that recorded for Candid Records in the 1980s and 1990s.

Childers became a member of the Bahá'í Faith by 1982. He died of cancer on May 24, 2007, age 81.
