Happy Birthday Doc Severinsen!
Today is Carl "Doc" Severinsen's Birthday. One of the true greats and oh the stories that Doc can tell. If you're ever lucky enough to spend some time with Doc it's time well spent. Doc is still touring and playing his trumpet at the young age of 91. Do yourself a favor today and get out some of Doc's recorded music and give it a spin. If you don't have any of Doc's music then we highly recommend getting some. We know there are a lot of fans of the Tonight Show Orchestra out there that are always looking to hear more from the band, well check out Doc's album releases and you'll be glad you did. A couple of personal favorites are "The Big Band's Back In Town Starring Doc Severinsen" and "Doc Severinsen's Closet" which has a big version of "The Court of the Crimson King", "Surfer Girl" "Give Me Just A Little More Time" and an "Abbey Road Medley" as well as other deep cuts. Happy Birthday Doc!
