The Clefs, an obscure vocal group, were Scott Mansfield, Pavel Bess, Frank Newman, Fred Council and Leroy Flack of Washington DC. Chess was sent a demo of the group in early 1952 which resulted in the recording issued on Chess 1521, “We three”/”Ride on”. The recording was a regional hit in the Chicago area. The group went on to record for the Peacock label in Houston.
