Benny Carter and His Orchestra were booked at the Orpheum Theater (with Harry "The Hipster" Gibson and Helen Humes) from March 19-24, and the Carter group played a dance at Meadowbrook Gardens in Culver City on March 30. Davis was still performing after hours with Charlie Parker.

Some discographies list Howard McGhee as the trumpet player, but it certainly sounds like Davis on all three of these tunes. Thanks to Tommaso Urbano and Craig Neilson for help with this session.
