Session Details: 

Jazzdisco.org lists Red Norvo as playing vibes on this session, but sutherland, burton and Lord omit him, with no comment. Norvo does play with Diz and Bird the next night in NYC, so it seems perhaps that jazzdisco got them mixed up since no other sources list him in the Philly session. -JS
