Nottingham's first professional job was with Cecil Payne in 1943. He served in the Navy in 1944-45, where he played in Willie Smith's band. Following this he worked with Lionel Hampton (1945-47), Charlie Barnet, Lucky Millinder, Count Basie (1948-50), and Herbie Fields. He played Latin jazz from 1951-53, then was hired by CBS as a staff musician in 1954. He worked for CBS for more than 20 years, and played jazz music in his spare time, with Budd Johnson (1962), Dizzy Gillespie, Oliver Nelson, Benny Goodman, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis (1966-70), and Clark Terry (1974-75). His only recordings as a leader were four songs for Seeco Records in 1957.
