"The Winter of My Discontent" on "King Richard the Swing Hearted" is a quite an arrangement (by Nat Pierce, in something of a Ralph Burns vein) of quite a piece of music (by Alec Wilder). BTW, the notes of the original LP and its Fresh Sound LP reissue misidentify some of the soloists (e.g. on Al Cohn's excellent "Northern Comfort," the second solo is by tenorman Richie Kamuca, not altoist Dick Meldonian). Also, "Bunny Harris", who is said to be the guitarist, is a pseudonym for Jimmy Raney.

I see that above the guitarist on "King Richard the Swing Hearted" is listed as Herb Ellis, not "Bunny Harris." It's still Jimmy Raney, as the playing itself makes clear.
