Uncredited Freddie Hubbard

This find owes to my wife who was watching "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999). She sang me a song she liked and thought the trumpet player was Freddie Hubbard. This turned out to be "Four" (which was composed by Miles Davis) and, indeed, at about 52 minutes in, Hubbard is swinging away on trumpet. However, in the movie's credits, it says it's performed by Guy Barker (a white trumpet player) and his group. Actually, Barker did record this song separately, but that version is not what's on the sound track and not what we see on the screen and hear.
