Trumpet Jazz Master Performs 

“Heeeeere's Johnny!"  That lead-in, followed by a big band trumpet blast, was the landmark of late night television for three decades. The ‘Johnny' was Johnny Carson, the announcer was Ed McMahon and the bandleader was Doc Severinsen. The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson ruled the night air for 30 years, and within a week of the final telecast in 1992, Doc Severinsen and His Big Band were on the road.

Twenty years later, audiences are still able to hear the depth of talent belonging to a band that rarely played a whole tune on the air. Severinsen can blow the roof off with a trumpet solo, but he is not the only accomplished soloist. Many of his band members get their well-deserved turns in the spotlight. Their repertoire includes Ellington and Basie standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics and, of course, The Tonight Show theme.  Today, Doc is highly regarded as one of the most technically proficient trumpeters, with the best stage presence of anyone out there. He can blow a horn like few others…he is a high note virtuoso, a genuinely funny man, and always a fashion fiend. 

“…an able bebop soloist with a bright, clean tone and a tremendous range in the upper register of his horn.”-All Music
