Tune in for this special edition of Jazz Matinee as host Al Dean chats with the Director of Compaq Big Band, Al Saloky. They will be later joined by legendary trumpet player Wayne Bergeron.

Wayne Bergeron is enjoying a career as one of the most active players in the world. With studio dates, international touring, jazz concerts, guest soloist appearances and clinics, he has no intention of slowing down.

Bergeron’s passion for big bands has led to his inclusion in some of Los Angeles’ most well respected bands. He has recorded with Quincy Jones, Gordon Goodwin, Arturo Sandoval, Pat Williams, Sammy Nestico, Jack Sheldon, Chris Walden, Tom Kubis, John La Barbara, Andy Martin, Ralph Carmichael, Bob Florence, Frank Capp, Matt Cattingub, Bill Liston, Kim Richmond, Ray Anthony, Buddy Childers, Roger Neumann, Bill Perkins, Bill Elliott, Gary Irwin, Bill Watrous, Bob Curnow and Phil Kelly.

This month Wayne Bergeron joins the Compaq Big Band as their Special Guest Artist at New England's storied jazz landmark, Scullers Jazz Club in Boston. The performance will feature Wayne Bergeron on arrangements from his big band, as well as charts done for Maynard Ferguson, plus sensational Feature Vocalist Rebecca Holtz singing selections from the great album with Diane Shuur fronting the Count Basie Orchestra, and much more.
