Doc Severinsen
"The Great Arrival"

Released in 1968, this was far from Doc's first record, but it was among the first records when Doc was known as the bandleader for Johnny Carson.
One can only imagine that working with Mr. Carson dramatically increased Mr. Severinsen's profile with the average on-the-street fellow.

I've had the privilege of playing with Doc Severinsen, and now, even in his 80's exhibits a control over his trumpet that most would envy in their prime.
