James Mtume was on congas and percussion. Mtume was a vital young man, handsome and in great shape. He was descended from a jazz family (Jimmy and Percy Heath were his father and uncle) and he knew how to put on a show. He had a great touch on the congas, and he would also play an early version of a drum machine to great effect. [...]

Shortly after our ill-fated Dallas trip, Miles would add Lonnie Liston Smith on organ. Lonnie was a big, gentle bear of a man, very soft spoken. Having started as a piano player, he was a bit out of place on the electric organ. He rarely soloed, preferring mainly to add color to the band's wall of sound.
