Session Details: 

This was the session during which Mingus re-recorded bass lines for the Massey Hall concert of May 15, 1953.

Our source lists Art Taylor as the drummer for these tunes, but in I Know What I Know: The Music of Charles Mingus, Todd S. Jenkins writes that neither Art Taylor nor Max Roach recall recording these pieces. 

Tom Lord lists the drummer as "unknown."
