Session Details: 

Diz and Monk do both play piano in the final track, as it says here, but Sheridan notes that Monk only plays on the final theme (and lays out the rest). -JS

For some reason, this particular performance was billed as "Minton's Playhouse All Stars", but it was the same group on the same tour in which they were otherwise referred to simply as Giants of Jazz. -JS
