Note(s)(b Stockton, CA, 9 Jan 1917). American trumpeter. He came from a musical family and studied cornet as a child, then trumpet; from the age of 15 he worked professionally and soon thereafter was with Gil Evans. During the following years he worked with Jimmy Dorsey (1936), Maxine Sullivan (1937), the drummer Skinnay Ennis (1938), and Benny Goodman (1939 - 43). In 1943 he joined the staff orchestra of CBS and for the next 30 years worked in radio and television; at the same time he belonged to the NBC Symphony Orchestra and played occasionally in the bands of Woody Herman (recording in 1958), Count Basie, and Duke Ellington, and later worked with Quincy Jones (recording in 1961 at the Newport Jazz Festival), Oliver Nelson, and Gerry Mulligan; in 1962 he toured the USSR with Goodman. He performed in the 1970s with the New York Jazz Repertory Company and the National Jazz Ensemble and appeared at many festivals into the 1980s. Maxwell's work as the leader of a section is highly regarded; his style as a soloist is reminiscent of that of Cootie Williams. Eddie Lambert: Maxwell, Jimmy [James Kendrick]
