After returning from the European tour in September-October 1960, the Davis Quintet (with Jimmy Heath replacing Sonny Stitt) was booked for a week at the Regal Theater in Chicago (October 21-27); Stitt rejoined the Quintet for two weeks at the Village Vanguard (November 15-27) and a week at the Howard Theater in Washington (December 2-8), at which point he left for good. Davis quickly hired Hank Mobley, and the Quintet resumed touring: Cloister Club, Chicago (December 26-January 8); Bradford Hotel Storyville Room, Boston (January 23-28); a live jazz program for Chicago's WMBI-FM (February 6); Kleinhans Music Hall, Buffalo (February 25); Village Vanguard, New York (February 28-March 12); Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles (March 31); Blackhawk Supper Club, San Francisco (April 4-30); Foster's House of Jazz, Detroit (May 25–28).
