Al has played with many of the greats in jazz and big band music. The list includes Al Hirt, Lionel Hampton, Louis Bellson, Wild Bill Davison, Stuff Smith, Billy Butterfield, Ira Sullivan, Barret Deems, Warren Vache, Jr, Don Menza, Bud Freeman, Kenny DaVerne, Tommy Saunders, Speigle Wilcox, Dick Carey, Maxine Sullivan, Wild Bill Whelan, Joni James, Bob Havens, Pee Wee Erwin, Bill Allred, Brian Torf, Connie Haines, Ernie Carson, Richie Cole, and others.

In his 'Along Together' CD, Al goes it alone, playing all the instruments himself through the magic of multi-track recording.
