Session Details: 

The second half of the concert--the tracks with no track-times--is difficult to find info about. Some of the tracks bear similarity to the "Dizzy Gillespie 1956" session, and the similarities are mentioned on the organissimo forum (whose link you can find in the aforementioned session). Whether that's because these tracks were actually from a different session or not is unclear. Additionally unclear is why on the track "Live in Chester" all these other tracks were not included, even in a re-release years later, yet every discography lists them as occurring. -JS
