Saxophones/Woodwinds: Jerome Richardson (lead), Jerry Dodgion, Joe Henderson, Eddie Daniels, Pepper Adams Trumpets: Al Porcino (Lead), Richard Williams, Snooky Young, Danny Moore Trombones: Eddie Bert (lead), Jimmy Knepper, Garnett Brown, Cliff Heather (bass) Rhythm: Roland Hanna (piano), Richard Davis (bass), Mel Lewis (drums)
