Session Details: 

Burton clarifies that the version of "The Chase" is the Tadd Dameron tune, not the Wardell Gray/Dexter Gordon song (which is what Philology says incorrectly). The performances are "edited to bird solos", so again we list them both as 'incomplete'. Also, Burton and Sutherland list the session simply as January, while Peter Losin specifies the time from of January 3-6. -JS
