Session Details: 

The track entitled "Brother King" is mysterious. Is it the same as Diz' other song, Brother K, which is about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? Or did he compose two songs, with nearly identical titles, about the same man? 

 

Also, Lord misspells the Milt Jackson tune "SKJ" as "SJK". -JS
