Session Details: 

Sutherland & Burton state the the date is murky and attribute it somewhere in 1949/1950. Losin, whose discography came later, has done further research and states that according to Norman Saks, this is the correct date. Also, while some say it is Red Rodney, Losin definitively states it is Miles Davis. -JS

As with many of the privately recorded live gigs of Bird, the tracks are all fragmented and incomplete. -JS
