Although trumpeter Bubber Miley was a member of the orchestra for only a short period, he had a major influence on Ellington's sound.
An early exponent of growl trumpet, his style changed the " sweet " dance band sound of the group to one that was hotter, which contemporaries termed " jungle " style.
He also composed most of " Black and Tan Fantasy " and " Creole Love Call ".
An alcoholic, Miley had to leave the band before they gained wider fame.
He died in 1932 at the age of 29.
He was an important influence on Cootie Williams, who replaced him.
