Session Details: 

Lord lists the tracks in alphabetical order, so it stands to reason Hazavoet's order of tracks should be used instead (except for "Tenderly" which for some reason Lord lists twice, once in Alphabetic order, and once not, but without distinguishing why this occurs) JAzzdiscography.com uses the same song order as Hazavoet in the Sir Charles Thompson discography. Bruyninckx does not list as many tracks as either Lord or Hazavoet.

Hazavoet lists the location at Kantonsschule, while Lord simply says "Jazz in der Aula" which is not a venue but the festival/series that included this live session.
 

Finally, while Lord mentions that Byas is omitted on certain tracks (all of which he says were unissued), neither Hazavoet nor jazzdiscography.com corroborate that information. Those tracks are: An Affair to Remember, B-Flat Thing, But Beautiful, Church House Blues, I Get a Kick Out of You, Memories of You, Mr. Sandman, Robbins' Nest, Stompin at the Savoy. -JS

 

Hazavoet incorrectly spells the venue's name. Changed to correct spelling.--ac.
