A native of Philadelphia, Ernie headed west and attended Jefferson High School,
under the watchful eye of Samuel Browne, the nurturing music teacher who inspired Dexter Gordon, Chico Hamilton and countless others.
Ernie’s stellar career emerged during Central Avenue’s heyday when he won an amateur contest at the Lincoln Theatre.
