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 notes that the concert ran from midnight to 1:30am. It was a radio broadcast, the Symphony Sid Show, WADO 1280-AM. The information for this session was retrieved through a private recording that was provided by Boris Rose.
