A move to the Chess Brothers' Aristocrat label saw sessions under his own name including the instrumental 'The Mojo' and Artie Shaw's 'Summit Ridge Drive'. The Aristocrat label became Chess in 1950 and another release by Mallard this time with Andrew Tibbs as vocalist. Two tracks from United with Roosevelt Sykes Honey Drippers then a session with Mercury, first with Big Bill Broonzy and on his own with 'The Bunny Hop'. Another Mercury session produced two more instrumentals including 'Accent on Youth' where his overdubbed alto & tenor creating what has been described as 'an impossible sonic perspective'.

Back to Chess for two instrumentals with his own orchestra and a couple with the popular Chicago club singer Mitzi Mars. Then with one of the many Chess doo wop groups The Coronets. For the final track he joined Guitar Slim's New Orleans road band for a session that produced 'Later for You Baby' and was released on the Los Angeles label Specialty.

These 26 tracks just scratch the surface of his Chicago recording career but give an insight to what a great artist he was as a session man or in his own right.
