Bright idea to gain info on "that song"

<< < (3/3)

Bet you thought you got us there, huh Gant?  ;)

It looks as though Larry Bunker is the main drummer, with  John Guerin as a second drummer and percussionist.  Emil Richards, Ken Watson, and Joe Porcaro are also on percussion.

--- Quote ---Biography
A versatile studio musician who is skilled on all types of percussion, Larry Bunker's main significance to jazz has been as a drummer and vibraphonist. He was a member of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet in 1953 (replacing Chico Hamilton) and then primarily worked in the studios but emerged in the jazz world for associations with Stan Getz, Warne Marsh, Clare Fischer, Gary Burton, Dizzy Gillespie and most significantly as a member of the Bill Evans Trio (1963-65), making occasional recordings in a jazz setting through the decades. Larry Bunker's only opportunities to lead his own band on record resulted in three obscure albums in a 1963 quartet that included Gary Burton; one came out on Vault and the other two appeared as Japanese Interplay CDs. Larry Bunker is a spokesperson for Vic Firth American Jazz drumsticks, and uses their Wood AJ2 brand in all performances and recordings. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
