Session Details: 

In Chet Baker's discography, this is listed as a separate session to the multi-song session he plays with his own group. However, I have been able to find NO other songs that Brubeck's quartet played without Baker on this date at the festival, which implies that Brubeck played one song--with Baker--and then went offstage. Obviously, this may very well not be true, but every other discography lists only this one song on this one date played by Baker with Brubeck's quartet, and no other tunes by the Brubeck quartet alone. For this reason, we are classifying it as a separate session from the other Newport Jazz FEstival session with Baker and his own group. -JS
