This session concludes the four-hour collection of Benedetti acetates made during the first two weeks of March 1947 at the Hi-De-Ho club. These recordings allow us to study closely Parker's playing during a crucial period in his career. There are several additional items from the Hi-De-Ho held by Benedetti relatives that were not included in the Mosaic set.

Numbers in parentheses indicate the place of the item in the Mosaic box. "(4/1)" means that this item is on disc 4, track 1.
