Us & Thad Jones & Mel Lewis

From a tv performance in Japan (must have been the 70s).

Dashikis are way out of style, but the music lives on! Composed, arranged and conducted by Thad Jones. Mel Lewis on drums. The band is full of giants, and I can’t really identify them, but Pepper Adams does the baritone sax solo. Roland Hanna is on piano. Don’t know who is playing bass or doing the soprano solo, but I should.

I have this in the studio version on CD with slightly different personnel, the album Consumation (1970). Great album!
