Through the ’70s, he caused the group Music Inc., co-led by Tolliver and Stanley Cowell. Queen departed America in 1979 for Switzerland, and set up Nilva Records. Then toured France with Plas Johnson and Harry Edison, and documented with John Collins and Junior Mance within the ’80s; while also employed in Zurich using a trio led by Crazy Costs Davis and saving with another led by Lonnie Smith.
