Session Details: 

Sutherland and Burton's discographies list one whole session with 11 tracks as occurring some time in February with a varying group of musicians. Jazzdisco splits these songs into four separate sessions with separate leaders. The two songs that are on Burton's/Sutherland's but not in Jazzdisco are the two tracks with Burton & Sutherland both say were quite possibly without Parker. Since the personnel and date is not known, including those two tracks is problematic since it's possible they were recorded with entirely different personnel and on different dates/locations. -JS
