This is part of Mutual Network's Bandstand USA, which was broadcast live on Saturday nights beginning in 1956.

In the first few months of 1957 the Davis Quintet spent very little time in New York: Jazz City, Hollywood (January 4-17); Blackhawk Supper Club, San Francisco (January 22-February 10); Syria Mosque, Pittsburgh (Wednesday, February 13, two shows); Peacock Alley, St. Louis (February 15-23); Preview's Modern Jazz Room, Chicago (February 27-March 10); Comedy Club, Baltimore (March 26-31); Café Bohemia, New York (April 5-28, last 2+ wks canceled). The Quintet was disbanded during this engagement at the Café Bohemia -- Davis fired Coltrane and Philly Joe Jones for increasingly erratic behavior. Curtis Fuller may have participated in some of the performances at the Bohemia.
