Session Details: 

Our source includes this note: "According to Priestley (1983), Benny Harris's Reets And I (track b) is played by Akiyoshi, Grimes, Wright and Richmond. However, I only hear one bass player and also based on the Mingus's introduction of the whole band ("... and that was Herman Wright on bass, Henry Grimes on the bass solo, just changed places...") and Symphony Sid ("Charlie Mingus Trio featuring Toshiko on piano"), I believe that Grimes is the only bass player on this track."

 Lord, alternatively, offers the suggestion that all bass parts are played by Grimes or Wright. -CD
