With John Hunt, Marcus Belgrave, Martin Banks – trumpet; David Newman – tenor saxophone, Hank Crawford – alto saxophone, Leroy Cooper – baritone saxophone; Milt Turner – drums; Edgar Willis – bass.
According to the liner the notes, the tune was arranged by Ralph Burns. In reality, the tune was probably charted by Bob Brookmeyer.
Between 1961 and 1964 the song was longlisted in concert souvenir brochures as being part of the band’s live repertoire. Live recordings have never surfaced, though.
