Truell Hyde never played on Aja.

Indeed, the man who played on Aja and Royal Scam is indeed [b]Richard or Dick "Slyde" Hyde.[/b] He is the legendary studio and jazz musician, compatriot of sax player Pete Christieb. Slyde Hyde played *trombone* on tracks including the Caves of Altamira, Sign in Stranger, The Fez, and Royal Scam from the Royal Scam album.

On Aja the Brass section was comprised of Chuck Findlay, Lou McCreary, and Dick "Slyde" Hyde. Saxes & flutes include Jim Horn, Bill Perkins, Wayne Shorter, Plas Johnson, Tom Scott and Jackie Kelso.

Dick "Slyde" Hyde again played Black Cow, Deacon Blues, Home at Last, I Got the News, and Josie.

There is no French horn nor a Truell W. Hyde (who would have been 21) credited on the album Aja.

I knew Truell Hyde at Baylor in 1979. I saw his black corvette and black Harley. I asked him if he was "Sly" Hyde. He answered "Yes" and smiled and said nothing else. I believed that baloney for the last 34 years
