Notes
Brian Rust in his Jazz records speculates that, on the basis of listening, this master is the same as BS-77807.
Victor ledgers: "Mr. Oberstein, present."
Instrumentation is from Victor ledgers and as is the case with instrumentation listings in the ledgers, it represents the number and type of performers present rather than the exact number of players or instruments played on this master.
