    Bandleader for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992-95)
    He first became famous playing in his brother's quintet.
    He did not have as good a rapport with Jay Leno as his replacement, Kevin Eubanks.
    He said, 'I didn't like jazz at all until I was 19. I was an R & B guy. As I got older, my brain developed and I realized some of my musical choices were simplistic and I craved something more challenging.'
    He was a member of Sting's band, playing with him at Live Aid and the Nelson Mandela Freedomfest.
    He emerged from his brother's shadow to become a major artist in his own right.
    He performed classical music with the English Chamber Orchestra.
    He teamed with Harry Connick, Jr., to create the Musicians' Village in New Orleans for musicians who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina.
