During 1955-1964, pianist Billy Maxted led a small group that was quite flexible, particularly after Johnny Dengler joined up in 1958. The band (four horns, including Dengler on bass sax, tuba, and cornet) and three rhythm performed Maxted's arrangements, which left room for spontaneous playing and gave the ensemble a sound similar to Bob Crosby's Bobcats at times.
