Parker was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States,
and started his career as a saxophonist, playing with
Professor Longhair on his hit "Mardi Gras In New Orleans" 
in 1949. Over the next decade, he played with 
most of New Orleans'musicians, including Fats Domino, 
Irma Thomas, and Huey "Piano" Smith. By 1958, 
he had started recording solo, 
having a local hit with th instrumental "All Night Long". 
In 1965 he signed for Nola Records, and had his biggest
hit with "Barefootin’". Although he continued to record, 
he failed to repeat his success in terms of sales, and 
his recording career effectively ended in the 1970s.
