    Thanks so much for the info on Hal and Nick drumming on Going Places. Next question; Who is the bass player on Tangerine (Whipped Cream...)? The great Wrecking Crew studio icon Carol Kaye is reputed to have played on most of the "Whipped Cream" tracks. But Carol is primarily (exclusively?) an electric bass player. Those busy lyrical counter lines on "Tangerine" are obviously being played on an upright (acoustic).
