This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Al Porcino (trumpet)

MINIMAL BIOGRAPHY:

Great trumpet player, Al Porcino was born Angelo Paul Porcino in New York on May 14th, 1925.

He has played with many of the great orchestras along the years: Gene Krupa (1946), Tommy Dorsey, Stan Kenton (1947, 1950 (or maybe 1948?), 1954 to December 1955), Chubby Jackson (1949), Count Basie, Woody Herman (1946, and again from 1949 to 1950, and in 1954 and in 1972), Dizzy Gillespie (1962), Buddy Rich (1968), Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra (1969), Chuck Mangione (1971) and others.

He cofounded a big band with Med Flory from 1957 to 1959. Then, Al joined Terry Gibbs from 1959 to 1962.

He has also backed singers such as Frank Sinatra, Vic Damone or Mel Torme.

Al Porcino formed his own orchestra in 1971.

He appears in many recordings along the years. Al Porcino sadly passed away on December 31th, 2013. His list of credits is endless, so I´ve just included some of them, and I´ll be adding more in the future when I have some more time...
