Bill Byers provided trombone for Waka/Jawaka, The Grand Wazoo, and Quaudiophiliac.

Mr Billy Byers (as credited on jazz and popular music recordings) was a highly respected arranger for Count Basie and other bands. He made a very good living as a ghost arranger in the studios when jazz was not popular and surely did much of the Zappa jazz-fusion arrangements for Waka Jawaka and Grand Wazoo. He may have had a part in the arranging of Peaches En Regalia.
