Session Details: 

This session was recorded by Timme Rosenkrantz. The drummer on the second track is unknown. Hazevoet provides two private session recordings that took place in the Autumn of 1944, therefore, we have designated the two as separate by noting a "(I)" and "(II)" in the session title.
