One of the most adventurous jazz bands of the bebop era was led by white Chicago-educated saxophonist Boyd Raeburn (1913), and featured mostly white bop players. Initially, driven by Ed Finckel's compositions, such as March Of The Boyds (june 1944) and Boyd Meets Stravinsky (february 1946), the orchestra played a progressive form of swing. But the main composer in the golden years from 1944 till 1946 was pianist George Handy, who arranged frequently dissonant scores and penned Tonsillectomy (october 1945), Yerxa (october 1945) and Dalvatore Sally (february 1946), the first movement of a four-movement Jazz Symphony.

Raeburn died in 1966.
