Session Details: 

Hazevoet notes that the bassist is "possibly" Nick Fenton. Hazevoet also notes that an unknown trumpet player joins the first track. An unknown guitar player is "just audible on the first 16 bars of Guy's second solo" on Indiana. The date is given as "possibly" May 20 or 21, but there is not definite certainty on this.

This session was recorded by Jerry Newman.
