In 1964, he performed for a couple months using the Jimmy Dorsey ghost music group and he spent the past due ’60s playing locally in Cleveland, documenting with Expenses Dobbins for the Arrival label (1969); they co-led a quintet for a couple years. Krivda performed in LA with Quincy Jones (1973) and lived in NY for an interval (1976-1979).
