Session Details: 

Note: chetbaker.net lists two tracks as "Helena" instead of "Halema". "Halema" is correct, as it is the name of Chet's first wife and the tune appears by that name in various issues all apparently stemming from this july 31st session. Ergo, "Helena" is most probably a mistake. -JS

 

Note: "To Mickey's Memory" was recorded twice, as a master and as an alternate take. chetbaker.net does not list the alternate track, but it appears in other discographies for this session. Chetbaker.net does list an alternate track of Lucius Lu, or at least it seems so: there is a "ditto" mark below Lucius Lu which would appear to be saying it's a track of the same name. Since there ARE two versions of "TMM" but only one "LL" on any issues, I think it's reasonable to assume it is meant to indicate the alternate track to "TMM" and not "LL"-JS
