Session Details: 

Unlike jazzdisco.org, Lord lists multiple instruments per performer, but gives no hint whether they play them during the same track, or if it varies. This information is only marginally helpful without knowing that extra bit of information, but we are including those other instruments here. -JS

 

Also, as one may notice, there are three sessions with Dizzy on the date of July 19, 1980 in Montreux. While it may be obvious, for further clarification let us say: these are three distinct sessions because of a) variety of leaders (Mongo for two, Diz for one) b) location (two are live sessions at the Montreux festival, one occurred in a studio in Montreux). -JS
