Session Details: 

I cannot find research which indicates composer titles for these tracks. It is possible that the "Ballad Medley" is a medley of the same tunes that Dizzy would play a month later in New York, also with Roy Eldridge. It is also possible that "Jazz Concert Blues" is not a title of a composition, so much as it is how somebody labeled a jamming blues improvisation played live. -JS
