Session Details: 

There is another session, marked as occurring in Paris as well, on May 2,3, & 4, also with Arvanitas and Sim. Don Byas & Jacques Denjean Orchestra. It is unclear from either Bruyninckx or Lordisco how this session on 5/4 alone differs from the other, since there is no indication if the dates indicate a range, or separate live performances with the same setlist, or three recording dates where the tracks cannot be attributed to an individual date. Regardless, the biggest difference is obviously that the 5/4/62 session is a quartet, not an orchestra. -JS
