Session Details: 

While Lord & Fitzgerald list this as all occurring on April 25, Bruyninckx has it split between April 23 & 24. Since Lord and Fitzgerald are more recent, and have more detailed information, we are going with them over Bruyninckx in this instance. -JS

Usually this doesn't come up, but this session is also a case where someone plays two instruments in the same track. According to Fitzgerald and Lord, while Moody plays either Alto or Tenor, in one instance, he does play flute and tenor saxophone (on Dizzy Atmosphere). -JS
