Unfortunately, they never show who is playing, but the credits for the band list Rick Stepton and Conrad Herwig on trombone and Peter Beltran on Bass Trombone [from http://memory.loc.gov/diglib/ihas/loc.natlib.jots.200157609/default.html].  This is from a 2009 DVD produced by DrumChannel.com with 6 tunes from a 3-night set from February 16-18, 1982 at the Statler Hotel in NYC which was intended for a TV series but never aired.

Yes, no question, nobody else sounds like that.
Stepton's a lot younger there than I've seen him.... 1982!
They all look so young.

Conrad tells a really funny story about his time with that band... apparently he got fired before he even sat down on the bus for calling Buddy "man". They couldn't find another bone player before the bus took off so they re-hired him on the condition he didn't say "man". (Like: "Hey man, I'm really looking forward to playing with you its a real honor..." etc.) So on the first gig, he was sitting right next to Buddy because of the way they positioned the band... and the whole time all he heard was stuff like, "You no good... you can't swing... swinging like a rusty gate..." except with more expletives. So the whole time he thought, oh great I've already been fired once, now he thinks I can't play, etc.  Turns out they had a substitute bass player and the regular bassist was going to join them on the 2nd gig or something like that.  So the whole time he was actually cursing at the bass player but Conrad was just the one that could hear it!

Sounds like a great opportunity to make extensive use of the word "dude."
