We don’t know much about Bernard Potock. Since 1938, he plays trumpet in a jazz orchestra called “Banda”, led by Stanisław Laudan in Cracow.

After the war, he spends some time in Paris, where he leads the orchestra of the cabaret “La Riviera”, which he animates with Dave Cash in the 1950’s. He performs there on the trumpet and accordion. Afterwards, he will definitely settle in the United States.
