Session Details: 

Some similar mysteries to the June 26-27, 1946 session of Diz, not the least of which is that Bruyninckx again lists spotlite as being located in NYC, instead of D.C.

 

Here's something strange: the Monk discography I had used for the June 26-27 session doesn't list his session, from a week later, implying that Monk did not play on it. Bruyninckx lists the piano player as either Monk or John Lewis. For this reason, we are guessing it is John Lewis, since Kelley's research is subsequent to Bruyninckx' and so perhaps more accurate.

Also, Jazzdisco lists a single track session "Don't Blame Me", with Sarah Vaughn and Eddie Lockjaw Davis, at spotlite, occurring sometime in June 1946. bruyninckx lists a similar track occurring in this session (7/6/46), with Sarah Vaughn singing Don't Blame Me. That seems too big of a coincidence, and so I am assuming that Jazzdisco's session is actually the 7/6/46, since they don't give a specific date in June anyway, and these spotlite club shows are so discombobulated. -JS

Since this is from a live performance, we have not called tracks of the same song "take one", or "take two" since that is not how it works for a live performance. It's assumed they were played during different sets over the course of the same evening.
