Best-known to the public for his one-time regular gig with Doc Severinsen's Tonight Show band, Tompkins is a versatile, swinging pianist with a do-everything technique who is much in demand on the Los Angeles jazz scene. After studying at the New England Conservatory, he moved to New York, recording with Kai Winding and playing at times with Eric Dolphy (1964), Wes Montgomery (1966), the Bob Brookmeyer/Clark Terry quintet (1966), and Benny Goodman (1968).
