Session Details: 

 So Varela lists just four of these tracks from the Art Ford show and he lists them as occurring on September 10, 1949 instead of August 27 as Lord does. There is another August 27, 1949 set, also a TV broadcast, but it is different as it is with Eddie Condon (though Condon doesn't participate). We are choosing the later date, because other sources, including Wikipedia list the show as occurring on that date, not in August. However, there is a song that is missing from Varela's list, but is included in Lord's (Lover Man). 

 Also, Lord lists another August 27, 1949 with identical personnel to this one, that he says is POSSIBLY really from the Art Ford show, but it's unknown. Looking on Wikipedia, however, the exact tracks he lists are listed under an Arlene Francis date, so we are not putting it here.
