Must be with Lionel Hampton's Orchestra. Benny Carter on alto sax. Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Charlie Christian on guitar, Cozy Cole on drums - that's one star-packed session!

To add a couple of drummers to the list -

Jimmy Crawford - Lunceford's drummer, also with the Big 18.
O'Neill Spencer - Played with John Kirby's group and Mill's Blue Rhythm Band. I really dig his brush work. You can hear it on most of Kirby's tracks, I'd recommend "Bounce of the Sugar Plum Fairy".
