- Nov 23, 2009Max Vreede had the original issue as well as a Paramount test with different takes of these on each side. At the time (late 60's) the general consensus was Fats on piano and Louis Metcalfe trumpet.
They did those numbers in a stage show with Fats; hence the suggestion that he was on these sides.
However, Max didn't think it was Fats - and I agree; it doesn't really sound like him. I don't know enough of Metcalfe's playing to venture an opinion.
