Session Details: 

According to Losin, there are some who say it's Miles Davis on trumpet, but given that Symphony Sid never remarks on this--and given Parker's and Davis' recent dispute--that seems unlikely. Also, as always, transcriptions of all spoken introductions can be found on Losin's website. -JS
