Howard Johnson (bar) on b-d.

CD gives above as probable date. Sometimes listed as February 4, 1964.

Titles of these two compositions have often been confused. Winter Song, 1964 contains improvised solos. In Dixonia, Ben Young notes: The 12th December is a completely notated piece of much shorter duration.

Winter Song, 1964 recorded in sections and edited together. The alternative takes are of section F (including solos) only.
