Session Details: 

Sutherland's source lists this same exact session as having taken place on: January 23, 1952.

 

Sutherland lists the personnel to be almost the same as Losin, with a few discrepancies. Sutherland's differences are: 1) he lists Joe Lipman as the arranger and conductor, 2) he also lists the woodwinds and strings as unknown, but he proposes that Sam Caplan and Jack Zayde are possible violin players, and there are an additional 5 unknown violin players, 3) he also specifies that there are 2 unknown viola and 2 unknown cello, in addition to the 5 unknown violin, 4) he also states that the concert master could possibly be Sylvan Shulman (Losin doesn't list a concert master at all).
