Session Details: 

For some reason, Burton doesn't list personnel on this session. This is Bird's first recording since being released from Camarillo. Jazzdisco says Yardbird Suite is incomplete. Sutherland & Burton just say that tracks 1-3 are "poor quality", so perhaps they are referring to the same thing? Also, Burton/Sutherland both note as follows: Home Cookin' (part I) is played over 'Swonderful with a Honeysuckle Bridge; Home Cookin' (part II) is played over Cherokee, and Home Cookin' (part III) is played over I Got Rhythm. -JS
