After playing early on with Johnny Richards in 1941 and spending a couple years in the military, he worked with Les Paul (1946-1947) and Tommy Dorsey (1947-1949) before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a studio musician. Smith recorded frequently both with his trios and as a soloist. In addition to recording with Dizzy Gillespie, Anita O'Day, Buddy DeFranco, Louie Bellson, Steve Allen, Louie Bellson, and Stan Kenton (among others), he toured with Ella Fitzgerald off and on during 1956-1978. Smith died in Torrance, California on June 29, 2013 at the age of 91. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi 8,540 Monthly Listeners 912 Followers Where people listen Los Angeles, US 527 LISTENERS San Francisco, US 205 LISTENERS Phoenix, US 133 LISTENERS Seattle, US 128 LISTENERS Sacramento, US 127 LISTENERS Albums View all on Spotify Singles View all on Spotify Related Artists View all on Spotify Listen to Paul Smith now.
