There is probably more music from the first set. The applause after "On Green Dolphin
Street" is faded very quickly and the Quintet may have performed another tune and
almost certainly closed the set with "The Theme."
From March 21 through April 10, the Davis Quintet toured Europe, along with Oscar
Peterson and the Stan Getz and their groups, under the auspices of Norman Granz's
"Jazz at the Philharmonic." Surprisingly few recordings from this tour have surfaced.

March 21 (Monday, 7:30 and 10:30 pm), Olympia
March 22 (Tuesday, 7:00 and 9:15 pm), Konserthuset,
March 23 (Wednesday), Njardhallen, Oslo (or Goteburg, Sweden)

The Paris date (recorded by Europe-1 Radio) was quite a controversial beginning
to the tour, since Coltrane was loudly booed during his solo on "Bye Bye Blackbird."
Some contemporary reviews of the 1960 Quintet are reprinted in the booklet that
accompanies Trema 710455/8.
Thanks to David Wild and Guy Reynard for help with this session.
