Note(s)Henry Franklin "Buster" Smith (1904-1991), also known as "Professor Smith", was an American Jazz alto saxophonist and mentor to Charlie Parker. Smith was instrumental in instituting the Texas Sax Sound with Count Basie and Lester Young in the 1930s. Smith played saxophone for a range of musicians including Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Earl Hines, though in his career only recorded one solo album in 1959. Despite intending to release a followup in the 1960s, Smith was injured in an accident leading to never releasing a second solo album.
