This promotional recording was rediscovered in 2012, and the master is in the John B. Tumino Collection at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Although the tune is incomplete, it includes a beautiful 32 + 4-measure solo by Parker at a relaxed tempo. A version of "Margie," with a short Parker solo, was apparently also recorded on this date.
