Session Details: 

This concert is not listed in jazzdisco.org. Bruyninckx lists it as occurring sometime in April, but the website "Blog In Jazz" has a more definitive date: April 8. I am a little suspicious of their dates, though, because they say Dizzy performed in Italy from April 6-9 in Italy. Bruyninckx lists an April 6th date in Paris, so one of these sources is at least wrong with regard to that date. For now, though, have no other reason to think April 8th was not the date in Milan. -JS
