Session Details: 

Pete Losin uses the Philology issue to put this session in 1948, but has some misgivings about that. He mentions that Groovin' High could have been done in 1947, judging by Miles Davis' phrasing. The second two tracks are often put with the Dizzy big band songs, but should not be since, upon listening to them, they clearly are made by small group. Sutherland nor Burton mention this session, per se, but since so many of these fragmentary tunes have controversy about exact dates, I cannot say for certain whether these tracks are listed in Sutherland or Burton at an earlier session. -JS
