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.

The book source notes that the performance took place from 1:00 am to 1:30am. The session was broadcasted by the Symphony Sid Show, WADO 1280-AM. The radio broadcast was privately recorded by Boris Rose, and supplied to the book source by Mitsuo Johfu.

The book source specifies that Birdland is located at 1678 Broadway, at 52nd Street.
