Session Details: 

Lord lists this as a Clifford Jordan session, but I think that was just because Jordan is perhaps more famous as a leader. The issue associated with this session was a legitimate double billing of jordan and gilmore, and wikipedia and hardbop-tripod list the session as being equally led by Jordan & Gilmore. -JS
