Session Details: 

The second of two sets on this date. As Sheridan notes in his book, they are both relatively amateur tapings and possibly even from different locations (in the same city/date) -JS

 

Dexterity is labeled a "bass feature". I am unclear what that means, precisely. -JS

"And Then She Stopped" is referred to as Diz' "skit on I Can't Get Started". Does that mean it is a riff on the other song? Listening to them both, they do not seem similar at all. In other instances of Dizzy playing "And Then She Stopped", no such reference is made, so perhaps he performs a skit during the song? -JS
