Buddy Bregman (1930-2017) was a composer, arranger, and conductor who worked with some of the most notable musicians of the 20th century, including Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Bing Crosby, and Ella Fitzgerald to name only a few. Like many other musicians who worked in the same era, he can be seen using an Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602.
