The Usual Suspects

Gio Washington-Wright's Top L.A. Studio Musicians Tribute Site

This page is dedicated to JH horn parts that I overlooked or simply forgot about. 1976 to 1986 was arguably the busiest decade for the Jerry Hey Horns (before synths REALLY began to mess everything up!). I've listened to 100's of hours of music (everything Jerry did for that 10 year span) to make my choices for the final cut. This was no easy task - narrowing it to just 10. Anyway, here are my "favorite misses" for '76 to '86. - GW
