Session Details: 

This was a radio broadcast, but it was recorded for Dial records. Also track 7, in every instance of a discography, is subtitled "aka Bird Lore", even though the same is not done for any other instance of Ornithology. I've tried to look up if that's a different song that was quoted in this take, alone? Or is that in fact a subtitle for Ornithology, but it's left off some takes? Also, Track 9 is referred to as "The Famous Alto Break", even though it is just an excerpt.  -JS
