The Moon CD contains two medleys ("Autumn Leaves/Yoshua/The Theme" and "So What/Milestones/The Theme"). The first medley is a composite, with "So What" from the first concert spliced onto "Milestones" and "No Blues" from the second concert.

The Davis Quintet embarked on a European tour in late September. The itinerary (with several gaps) was as follows:

September 25: Berlin Philharmonie
September 26: Concertgebouw, Amsterdam
September 29: Le Théâtre Municipal, Lausanne
September 30: Kongresshaus, Zürich
October 1: Salle Pleyel, Paris (two concerts)
October 3: Johanneshov Isstadion, Stockholm
October 4: KB-Hallen, Copenhagen
October 6: Messuhalli, Helsinki
October 8: Stadthalle, Sindelfingen (two concerts)
October 11: Teatro dell' Arte, Milan

The Quintet was booked in other cities as well -- e.g. Barcelona and Frankfurt -- but I have been unable to find dates or confirm that these concerts occurred. Thanks to Flurin Casura for the advertisement for the Zürich concert.
