No details on recording session(s). Unknown additional backing musicians are present (sleeve lists "Harold Betters, His Trombone & His Quartet" but there are many more present).

In addition to trombone solo, (eb) and (d) are heard on all selections. Additionally, (p) is heard on all but f and (g) is heard on b, c, e, f, g, i.
chorus on a, b, f, g, j, k.
saxophone section on b, f.
speaking on i.
vibes on b; tambourine on c, i; cowbell on c, e; wind chimes on h.

Chuck Ramsey is a speculative assignment based on the presence of his composition. It is not known which arrangements are by Betters and which are by Hampton. Both are credited on the album sleeve. Pure speculation suggests that Hampton may have been involved in the selections with saxophone section (b, f).
