Benny Golson (ts) on a-b, d-e; Cecil Payne (bar) on a-b, d-e; Melba Liston (tb) on a-b, d-e.

Stablemates mistakenly issued as from a Philly Joe Jones session and wrongly listed in Lord as such.

Lord corrects date from September 15, 1957.

Confirmation needed that Melba's Tune is the same composition issued later as Melba's Blues.
