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

Also, searching for a Thore Jederby, I found the one we've listed here, although most credits list THAT thore jederby as a violinist/trumpeter. However, it would seem pretty remarkable if there were two thore jederby's in the same time period, who both played jazz in Sweden in the 1950s. -JS

 

Here are the lists of other dates of Parker in Sweden. If they have no jdisc entry, that's because we have no info on personnel or setlist:

Parker and Roy Eldridge took part in a one week tour of Sweden in mid-November. The itinerary was as follows:

November 20: Konserthuset, Stockholm (two shows)
