Session Details: 

Lord lists Diz as playing many instruments, but does not give a lot of information as to what he plays when, so we are assuming he plays them all throughout (except the Jew's Harp, as noted). -JS

 

 

Also, as one may notice, there are three sessions with Dizzy on the date of July 19, 1980 in Montreux. While it may be obvious, for further clarification let us say: these are three distinct sessions because of a) variety of leaders (Mongo for two, Diz for one) b) location (two are live sessions at the Montreux festival, one occurred in a studio in Montreux). -JS
