This is the second of three late-1947 Dial studio sessions scheduled before the American Federation of Musicians recording ban, which went into effect January 1, 1948 and extended through November.

The second Parker original is sometimes called "Klact-oveeseds-tene" but I suspect that this is a mistake. Details are elsewhere on this website.
