After his time with Gillespie, Legge settled in New York City to freelance. The remaining sides in this collection attest to Legge’s skill as a pianist while he developed his own voice, but also display his gifts as an imaginative composer in sessions with vibist Joe Roland and drummer Will Bradley Jr.

During his brief career he appeared on more than 50 recordings, showing himself an expert mixer of styles and moods. After retiring to Buffalo in 1959, he died in 1963 at the early age of 29.
