Notes

The dates on the Sandy Hook bootleg are wrong. There have been several discussions amongst collectors and discographers over the years over the dates of and location of the recordings including some who argued that they could be from the 1950 “Burma Lounge" concerts. However the collective wisdom appears to favour the information below as correct.

The Sandy Hook bootleg was also released on LP.

The recordings were first released on the bootleg LP – "Modern Complex Dialogues” – Alto label.
