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.

The book source also notes that there were live concerts that took place, one at 4:30pm, and the second at 9:30pm. The book source has retrieved its information for this session from a private tape that was provided to them by Yukinori Ohmura. It is unknown whether this tape/recording is from the early concert, the late concert, or both.
