Session Details: 

The Atlantic Recordings box set lists an incomplete number of tracks. Also, the REference Book separates this session into what was recorded from 2-6:30pm and what was recorded between 7:30pm-12am. For our purposes, of course, this still counts as one session since the personnel is identical, it was in the same location with the same leader and the space between the 'parts' are effectively a dinner break, not something that would mean they were two different and unique sessions.


Also, although it's annoying to look at, the sources do explicitly remark on which tracks Coltrane plays Tenor and which are with Soprano, so we have included that in personnel variances. -JS
