Session Details: 

Johnny Hartman's discography by Noal Cohen does not list this session, unless these tunes are actually from one of the concerts listed as occurring in October and November of 1948. But that would be a HUGE discrepancy between these two discographies, and one would think rather difficult considering those are live sessions and these appear to be a studio (at least, Bruyninckx gives no indication they are NOT a studio date). -JS
