Session Details: 

Sutherland remarks that the personnel is based on Gillespie's memory. Burton mentions nobody but Bird and Diz, but he also specifies that the "incomplete" refers to the fact that Bird's solo and  a "closing theme with counterpoint with the trumpet" is all that remains. Also, that the date may be inaccurate because February 3rd was the final night of the Billy Berg's gig. (not that these guys couldn't have jammed together afterwards or before?)
