When he was young Arthur moved with his family to San Francisco where he stated out playing R&B and at age nineteen returned to his hometown of Los Angeles a jazz musician.

By the mid-1960s he joined The Union of God's Musicians and Artist's Ascension, making his first recorded appearance on founder Horace Tapscott's 1969 recording "The Giant Is Awakened."

He continued to work with Tapscott regularly until 1974 when he moved East to New York working with Chico Hamilton and later Gil Evans.

In 1977 Blythe released his debt album as leader "The Grip" rapidly followed the year by "Metamorphosis."

His band would play Carnegie Hall in 1979 and in 1980 he was a featured performer on the Jack DeJohnette album "Special Edition."

After a time with the all-star band "The Leaders" Blythe left the group, following the departure of Julius Hemphill, and went on to join the "World Saxophone Quartet."
