Session Details: 

I am not entirely convinced that Dizzy played a solo concert for Yale University, performing only on the Jew's Harp, and playing a song entitled "Jew's Harp". He played a bunch of trio concerts with Dwike Mitchell and Willie Ruff at Yale, so I wonder if this was one of those times, and for some reason the other two performers were simply not mentioned. -JS
