This music is listed on Session Disc and Jazz Masters as "Bwongo" (first two titles) and "Ananka" (last three titles). The Jazz Masters CD is clearly mastered from an LP. Both sources are quite a bit (about a major 2nd) sharp, and the times listed above are from a pitch-corrected version.

The Sextet probably performed a standard set, but no more complete tapes of this concert have surfaced.

The Sextet (still with De Johnette) was booked at the Gaslight Club, New York (December 15-19).
