Session Details: 

This is one of a number of confusingly annotated sessions in Autumn 1965 surrounding the Monterey Jazz Festival. It takes a little detective work, between Allmusic's description of the bootlegged tape that was issued on CD in the 1990s that includes this session along with some Gil Fuller tunes with a bigger orchestra. But even though that recording sounds like one came immediately after another, the personnel (except for Moody & Gillespie) are so different, that they really ought to be considered separate 'sessions' during the same festival day. -JS
