Session Details: 

Between Lord, Concert Vault and MonkBook, there's some serious discrepancy regarding tracks. Lord and ConcertVault are identical, but monkbook lists 'Round Midnight, Lover Man & Tin Tin Deo, while omitting Blue 'n' Boogie & A Night in Tunisia. The Monkbook website, however, matches up with the Chris Sheridan print discography "Brilliant Corners". Without being able to definitively say one camp or the other is correct, we will include all tracks. -JS
