Session Details: 

Losin originally listed this as "unknown 1950" and has different personnel. Most notably, Joe Maini on Alto Sax. But if that were the case, it couldn't have been in 1952/1953 because Maini was in California by then. After discussing with Losin, he agreed that the 1952/1953 possible date made more sense, w/o Maini. -JS
