Session Details: 

Losin notes this as being part of Voice of America's "Jazz Club USA." Both Sutherland and Losin have two sessions noted as "Spring 1951," both are VOA radio broadcasts part of the same "Jazz Club USA" series. The first of these sessions (noted "Spring 1951") is just an interview between Leonard Feather and Charlie Parker, and in the second session (also noted "Spring 1951") is a full session with tracks. For our purposes, we have combined both of these "Spring 1951" sessions into one.
