Doc Severinsen Tickets - The Best Trumpet Player in the WorldIf you saw the classic Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, you would've been witness both with ears and eyes to the sound and sight of one 'Doc' Severinsen, the leader of the Tonight Show Orchestra and veritable announcer and banter buddy of Mr. Carson. His real name was Carl Hilding Severinsen, and he was born on July 7, 1927, in Arlington, Oregon. So get this: Severinsen was so good at playing the trumpet, that at the age of seven he was already playing with the local high school band! That should tell you something about his skill. Needless to say, his talent earned him a record label or two -- namely Command and then later RCA.
Doc Severinsen Tickets - The History of the DocWhile putting a few albums out there, most of the Doc's experience revolved around the Tonight Show, serving as orchestra leader for 25 years straight, and even after Jay Leno took over the show and let the Tonight Show Orchestra along with Severinsen go, he still toured with some of his very best all over America as a sort of Farewell Tour.
Doc Severinsen Tickets - The Sound of SeverinsenNo one could match the sheer easy breeziness of the Doc on the trumpet, specifically for some of his big-band work revolving around bop music, swing music, and jazz. He was so versatile even beyond that to the point that he could even cross over hits from Luciano Pavarotti with ease, making it sound like some of that classic Italian music was made for the trumpet.
