Session Details: 

According to John Burton, the second track is often labeled as "I Got Rhythm" but is in fact "Walkin' and Swingin'" by Mary Lou Williams. Furthermore, he claims upon listening to this track, it sounds like John Jackson--not Parker, and does not include this session in the Bird Discography he wrote. Allan Sutherland addresses this issue, but for some reason lists track 1 as "Walkin' and Swingin'" in parentheses beside "Jumpin' at the Woodside". Without a hard copy to listen to, it's difficult to side one way or the other. I will keep it like this, but with this note as a caveat. -JS

Comments

Track identification

We have hard copy  that can verify the question about the "rhythm"-based tune. I doubt Walkin and Swinging can be confused with "Jumpin at the Woodside"--that is simply an error. -TS
