About

From Wikipedia:

Raymond Eugene (“Ray”) Premru (June 6, 1934 – May 8, 1998) was an American trombonist, composer, and music teacher, who was based for most of his career in London, England. His work on the bass trombone was widely admired, and is preserved on innumerable recordings in diverse genres; his teaching influenced many leading trombonists; and his compositions were performed by leading orchestras and ensembles throughout the United States and Great Britain, contributing significantly, in particular, to the repertoire for brass instruments.

[…] In addition to performances and regular recording with the Philharmonia, Premru continued to freelance. As a session musician, he would play and record with, among others, Frank Sinatra, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, the Rolling Stones, and the Beatles (most notably on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band). In 1964 he joined the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, for which he would write several pieces; he remained a member until Jones’ own retirement in 1987. He also co-directed, and composed for, the Bobby Lamb/Ray Premru Big Band. […]

He played on the re-recording of the song “Wanderlust” for the “Give My Regards To Broad Street” film and soundtrack. It’s unclear if he also participated to the initial recording in 1981 for the “Tug Of War” album.
