Performing and touring regularly beginning in the late 50's with Buddy Rich, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Wild Bill Davison, Eddie Condon, and with Gene Krupa's Quartet from 1961-64, Bunch was Tony Bennett's pianist and musical director from 1966-72, which included rehearsing and conducting the Ellington, Herman and Basie Orchestras.
