Session Details: 

This is a radio recording of the series Berliner Jazztage. Bruyninckx and Lordisco don't list this session, but CJ Hazavoet does as does Fitzgerald's Jazz Discography (listed as a Booker Ervin session, because Ervin played on other songs during this same "workshop"). However, only Hazavoet lists the track "Perdido"--the other two sources (Jazzdiscography.com and http://www.plosin.com/milesahead/Tapes.aspx?s=19651029b) only list I Remember Clifford as a Byas tune (and don't list Perdido at all). For the rest of this particular session (all the tracks without Byas at all), look under the Booker Ervin discography on jazzdiscography.com -JS
