Session Details: 

Apparently, Charlie Parker participated in a weeklong tour of Sweden, of which this concert is part. According to Losin's discography, there were other dates, too, but he does not list specific session personnel or setlists. This information may be unknown, and generally without either a setlist OR personnel. But this is the reason for two separate sessions on the same date of November 24th: one was an official concert in the park, and one was an informal jam session later on.  -JS
