And the Band Played On: The Tonight Show Orchestra led by Doc Severinsen will play on even after the show changes hands when Johnny Carson leaves in May. The band will go on tour in June and has two albums coming out this fall. However, how long the orchestra will stay together once it leaves the show is unknown. Severinsen said one of the upcoming albums is called "Once More . . . With Feeling" for a reason--"because that's us. . . . We're going to do it once more, and always with feeling."
