Trumpeter and bandleader Doc Severinsen recently celebrated his 83rd birthday. After an extremely brief retirement following the end of Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show, Doc can be found back on the road again teaming up with the group El Ritmo De La Vida. At 83, his chops are still in great shape, and his wardrobe is still flashy.
Here is a video originally from a program called The Subject is Jazz from 1958, where we see Doc in a rare setting outside of a big band.
Happy Birthday Doc!
