Session Details: 

Radio broadcast. Bob Garrity mentions Billy Taylor in his announcement, but it is definitely Kenny Drew who plays here. For transcripts of announcements, see www.plosin.com. Worth noting the work of Losin of finding the exact date, as Sutherland and Burton only attribute this to December 1950. -JS
