John Jenkins, who had a similar sound to Jackie McLean, was most active in 1957, but dropped out of music by the mid-'60s. In 1955, he worked with Art Farmer, led his own group, and freelanced around Chicago. Jenkins moved to New York in 1957; played with Charles Mingus; led two albums of his own (on New Jazz and Blue Note); and recorded as a sideman with Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Paul Quinichette, Clifford Jordan, Sahib Shihab, and Wilbur Ware. Not much has been heard from him since.
