Tom's career performing jazz trombone on film and television dates back to 1970 with privileges of performing for the Saturday Night Live show, the CBS Orchestra, the David Letterman Show, and The Blues Brothers. The list of legends he has performed alongside is lengthy and it is because of his accomplishments that he has been awarded this great honor.
