Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book notes that some issues and discographies incorrectly list Jimmy Cobb on the drums. Lord does not make this mistake, his session information matches the book source's information. The book source also notes that this session probably took place in the afternoon time of May 23, 1958.
