I Remember Clifford (With The Ray Charles Orchestra)

Album: My Kind Of Jazz, Tangerine 1512. April 1970.

Recorded at RPM International in Los Angeles, from January 1 to 10, 1970. Arranged by Quincy Jones.

Ray Charles - piano; Bobby Bryant, Bill King, Marshall Hunt, Blue Mitchell, trumpets; Glen Childress, Henry Coker, Joe Randazzo, (+ Edward Comegys? or Fred Murrell? or David Phelps?) - trombones; J. Lloyd Miller - alto saxophone, oboe; Curtis Peagler - alto saxophone; Andy Ennis, Albert McQueen, Clifford Scott - tenor saxophones; Leroy Cooper - baritone saxophone; Ben Martin - guitar; Edgar Willis - bass; Ernest Elly - drums.

Through the years, four star trumpeters played the trumpet parts: I guess Blue Mitchell Bobby Bryant* took care of the solo on the album, John Hunt played it in Zurich (on flugelhorn), Johnny Coles in Paris, and Phil Guilbeau in Madrid.

* Wrong guess. Thank you, Jeff Helgesen.
