This was an aircheck.

C.J. Hazevoet notes that although Evensmo (1999) lists the drummer as "probably Buford Oliver" the "aural evidence" does not support this. He also writes that although Helge Jacobsen is listed among the personnel, no guitar is audible. There are other titles played in this session that include Peanuts Holland, Don Redman, Tyree Glenn, but without Byas.
