    Chris Shuford (the non-scat solo on Georgia on my mind, w/ I think Pat doing the scat solo) , Lissa Richardson, David Smith, Jenny Beddow, and I think Julie Brown were all there.

  2. Chris Shuford Says:

    Don’t forget Dyan Yoshikawa, Molly Bennett, Tiffany Drake, and (yes) Eileen Everett.

    Dave Smith did the scat solo on ‘Round Midnight’ (with a faint-duet underlay of Dave Parmeter, adding riffs he’d made “famous” when he would do the solo in some of our live performances).

    I believe the “5th” voice in Four Brothers was simply Pat Kelly again. The rest of us were too busy holding down the back-up parts, I think, to introduce a true “5th brother” voice – like MT does on their recording.

    Add Amy for a solo on Happy Face, and Eric’s scatting.
    I did do the Georgia solo, with Pat vocally recreating what he sometimes played as a trumpet solo during live performances, as I recall.
