Session Details: 

Jazzdisco lists a bunch of other tracks associated with this session, but Burton and Sutherland believe those are from March 25, 1946, not this one. Also, Jazzdisco lists "part 1 and part 2" of Sweet Georgia Brown. Does this mean take 1 and take 2? Or is the song stopped and begun again? For our purposes, and for the sake of accuracy, let's put the second one as an alternate take. -JS
