Session Details: 

The issue "Change of Pace" doesn't distinguish which tracks occurred on the February 7th session or the February 16th session, but based on which tracks Watkins plays on, and based on Lordisco, we can determine which happened when. However, Lord says that another track, "Guns of Navarrone" was part of this session. A track by the same name appears on a 45rpm LP released by Riverside on the B-Side. Soft and Furry (from Griffin's February 7, 1961 session) appears on the A-side. jazzdisco.org claims Guns came from the 2/7/1961 session, and it would make sense that two songs from the same session would be included on a A/B side 45rpm. But more research must still be done. -JS
