Session Details: 

After "Now's the Time", Bird can be heard saying "Salt Peanuts is next", but no recording has surfaced of that song from this concert. This session concluded a long concert on Christmas Eve that also included the likes of Sonny Stitt & Miles Davis. Some recordings have a voiceover of Leonard Feather commenting over "All the Things You Are". -JS
