Session Details: 

We have listed a single 'unknown' song, to show that Mike Longo played with the quintet during the same set. However, this is a gray area, because if a recording has never been identified (name or number of tracks) and can't be confirmed by an issue, how does the discographer prove that it exists? Not that we are trying to cast aspersions, but just that the definition of what a session is should have certain paramaters. A session is not simply a time that a band plays. I am not sure it can even be considered a time a band plays that someone, somewhere records it, on some sort of device. In any event, this is probably up for debate, but we feel compelled to make this note, explaining our actions. -JS
