Nakamura played in New York City from 1964, and in 1969 joined Roy Haynes's ensemble, for whom he also produced; that same year he also worked in a trio with Steve Grossman and Lenny White, who both went on to play on his debut as a leader, 1973's Unicorn. He also worked with Hubert Eaves, Charles Sullivan, George Cables, and Onaje Allan Gumbs. His 1977 release Manhattan Special reached #19 on the U.S. Billboard jazz charts.[1]
