He can be heard on such MF recordings as “Body & Soul,” “Big Bop Nouveau” & “Brass Attitude.” Remarking on the talented trumpet player, Maynard Ferguson had this to say during a radio interview: “Wayne is the most musical lead trumpet player I've ever had on my band.” Bergeron's first solo Big Band CD entitled “You Call This A Living?” earned him a Grammy nomination in 2004 for Best Large Jazz Ensemble as well as rave reviews from fans and press worldwide. Wayne’s passion for big bands finds himself seated in some of LA’s most well respected bands. He has recorded with Quincy Jones, Gordon Goodwin, Pat Williams, Sammy Nestico, Jack Sheldon, Tom Kubis, John La Barbara, Ralph Carmichael, Bob Florence, Frank Capp, Matt Cattingub, Bill Liston, Kim Richmond, Ray Anthony, Paul Cacia, Buddy Childers, Roger Neumann, Bill Perkins, Buddy Childers, Bill Elliott, Chris Walden, Gary Irwin, Bill Watrous, Bob Curnow and Phil Kelly.
