Session Details: 

This session is all fragments of Parker Solos. As with the Benedetti recordings, (where it's unclear whether the fragments come from the same take or not), our track nomenclature will be slightly different than normal. i.e., no "take 1, take 2", just "fragment 1, fragment 2" etc. Also, Losin lists an alternate personnel listing from Gerard Dugelay, which can be read in Losin's discography. -JS

This was with Gene Roland's orchestra, which is why he is listed alongside Parker as leader. -JS
