Session Details: 

We could only find this session listed in jazzdisco.org and on an obscure website called www.soundtrackcollector.com. It is not on Lord or in Bruyninckx. Also, it is difficult to say which performer is the leader of this session. Hawk would be the obvious choice because of seniority, but jazzdisco actually lists Dizzy first. 

This was a studio session, for the soundtrack to the film "Les Tricheurs." -JS
