Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book notes on which tracks Coltrane plays the tenor and on which he plays the soprano. Lord simply notes that Coltrane played both during this session, but does not provide any specificity. Coltrane plays both soprano and tenor saxophones on "Impressions (2 parts)."

This is the second session that is noted to "probably" have been performed between August 19-25, 1963. It was also a live performance at Showboat in Philadelphia, PA.

Information was derived from a private tape (audience recording).
