Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book provides a lot of specificity that is otherwise missing in Lord. Whereas Lord notes that Coltrane is on both tenor and soprano, the book source specifies which of these instruments is played on each track. Coltrane plays tenor only on the first track, and soprano on all others.

All but two of the tracks performed during this session are unissued. Only the playtimes for the tracks that are issued are available; playtimes for unissued tracks are not available in either Lord or the book source.
