Session Details: 

The Parker Quintet played at Cafe Society from June to July, in 1950. So did Tony Scott's group. Occasionally they sat in with each other's sets. The "partner" session for this one is the Tony Scott June-July 1950 where Parker sits in. As one will see, from reading Losin's notes, there is evidence that these two recordings occurred on the same night. Not sure why Sutherland and Burton do not have all the titles that Losin does. -JS
