Session Details: 

Similar problems with this session as with the 7/18/1957 session: Lord lists takes of the song "Ysabel's Table Dance" on this session as well, but Jazzdisco and Bruyninckx do not. Please refer to those three different discographers to see those discrepancies. Also, Jazzdisco lists multiple sessions on August 6th, but the composite of all of them is pretty much equal to Bruyninckx. For what it's worth, Bruyninckx, account of this session is the clearest to read and understand.

 

ALSO, NO MATRIX NUMBERS ARE LISTED. THERE WERE TOO MANY DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN LORD, BRUYNINCKX AND JAZZDISCO TO DETERMINE WHICH IS CORRECT.
