Herb Pomeroy
Herb Pomeroy  Biography
 Exclusive Recordings
 Buy CDs

Trumpeter Herb Pomeroy is best known as an educator, thanks to almost four decades at the Berklee College of Music. After retiring two years ago, Herb returned to performing full-time and he has quickly reminded Jazz listeners why he established a reputation as one of the best trumpeters out of Boston in the late '40s and early '50s.

Born in the seaport town of Gloucester, MA on April 15, 1930, Herb started on the trumpet after seeing a movie with Louis Armstrong. Although he took a year of pre-dentistry at Harvard, he decided to pursue music full time and eventually played with Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton and Stan Kenton before returning to Boston and forming his own big band in 1955. Herb's big band worked regularly in the Northeast and New England and even played at the original Birdland in 1957.

During his distinguished teaching career, Herb's students included Berklee's best, including Toshiko Akiyoshi, Gary Burton, Gary McFarland, Tiger Okoshi, and John Abercrombie. In addition, he taught at the Lenox School of Music.
