After more than 30 years as the colorful bandleader of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, master trumpeter Doc Severinsen continues to defy nature well into his 90s with a grueling schedule of touring, performing and teaching. An engaging new documentary, “Never Too Late: The Doc Severinsen Story,” traces the life and groundbreaking career of the unstoppable musical icon.

Check out this clip from the episode. Each night he appeared on The “Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” Doc Severinsen would walk out dawning the most eccentric, loud and gawkish clothing items – all of which he sourced himself.
