Session Details: 

This session is said in most discographies as occuring over two nights at Jazzhus Montmartre, but interestingly on the cover of one of the issues that came from this session the tracks "The Man I Love", "Hush-a-Bye", "Blues for Harvey", "The Masquerade is Over", "Sophisticated Lady" and "Wee" are all attributed firmly as occurring on the 30th. The rest of the tracks it is undetermined whether they occurred on on or the other. Also, jazzdisco.org misspells "Exactly Like You" as "Edacity Like You" for some reason.

Both Lord and jazzdisco AND the Black Lion issue misspell the location as "Jazzhuis" instead of "jazzhus".

Lord and jazzdisco.org both repeat the tracks Wee and Rhythm-a-ning, but without distinguishing between the tracks. While it is entirely possible, of course, that the band played those tracks both nights, the fact that neither discographer makes any distinction between the tracks of the same song (alternate, take 1 & 2) makes it seem that they just copied what was written on the back of the issues since it is EQUALLY possible that while most tracks were used on one issue, a couple tracks like "Wee" and "Rhythm-a-Ning" were issued twice. More research must be done here.
