Dave Bargeron is a versatile low-brass jazz artist hailing from Athol, Massachusetts, USA.
He won his first lead trombone job playing with Clark Terry's Big Band and from 1968-1970 played Bass Trombone and Tuba with Doc Severinsen's Band. In 1970, he joined Blood, Sweat and Tears. Dave's recording and concert schedule worldwide with BS&T includes eleven albums. A break in their schedule allowed Dave to join the Gil Evans Orchestra in 1972 and he remains a member of that Orchestra currently led by Gil's son, Miles Evans.
After leaving Blood, Sweat & Tears, Dave became both a sought-after recording musician in New York City and a well-known jazz artist. He also records with many artists playing diverse musical styles that range from pop albums with Paul Simon, Mick Jagger, James Taylor and Eric Clapton to jazz albums with Gil Evans, George Russell, Gerry Mulligan, Dave Sanborn and Pat Metheny. Dave currently records and tours internationally with the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band from Switzerland, the George Russell Living Time Orchestra, Rabih Abou-Kahlil and was a long-time member of Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth Band. He is also a charter member of Howard Johnson's Gravity, the 6-tuba group that has been together since 1968.
