Session Details: 

didn't make any edits because I'm a little confused by this entry. In Lord, these tracks are not listed for the session 4/28/1958. The session looks similar to one on 3/4/1985 (Lord B3695) but still has some differences. --ac.


We need to double check this against Chris Sheridan's authoritative volume on Basie, which I was originally using as the source.
