Session Details: 

Hazevoet notes that the pianist on the first two tracks is unknown, it is suspected that it may be Thelonious Monk but this is "far from certain." Hazevoet notes that a mysterious and unidentified "Tex" replaces the "unknown" piano player on the last track. Because "Tex" is unidentifiable, we have left the piano player under the category of unknown.

The session was recorded by Jerry Newman.
