Thereafter he settled in Los Angeles, where he collaborated with Nelson Riddle, David Rose and Johnny Mandel, and served as pianist on Natalie Cole’s famous “Unforgettable” CD, winning a Grammy for “best orchestral arrangement accompanying a vocal”. He won his second Grammy, for the orchestral accompaniment written for Shirley Horn of Leonard Bernstein’s “Lonely Town”.
