The Usual Suspects

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


Here are my Jerry Hey "favorite misses" for '87 to '97. Some people might think this is crazy, but this is actually my favorite Jerry Hey period. The Hey Horns were busier than ever. I was still in high school at the beginning of this period - and it seemed like Jerry and the guys were on EVERY song on the radio (and they were). Lastly, it was around this time that Dan Higgins (another one of my heroes) joined the horn section. Such fond memories... Enjoy! -GW.
