A technically competent trumpeter and an underrated trumpeter, Bernie Privin spent the majority of his profession employed in the studios, emphasizing his skills being a lead and section trumpeter. Self-taught, Privin was still an adolescent when he performed in the rings of Harry Reser (1937), Bunny Berigan and Tommy Dorsey (1938). He obtained some reputation for his use the orchestras of Artie Shaw (1938-39), Benny Goodman (1941-42) and Charlie Barnet (1940-41 and 1943). Within the armed forces, Privin was a significant area of the Glenn Miller Military Air Force music group. After another stint with Benny Goodman (for whom he’d rejoin many times in old age for travels), Privin became an employee musician at CBS in 1950 and he proved helpful gradually in the studios for another three years. The trumpeter documented prominently with Al Caiola (1955), toured using the Tommy Dorsey ghost music group and caused the brand new York Jazz Repertory Business in the middle-1970’s. He just led two albums in his profession, a established for Regent in 1956 and an extremely obscure time for HMT in Sweden in 1969.
