Kenny Hagood (v) on d.

Studio sometimes incorrectly listed as Capitol Studios, NYC but such a location did not exist in 1950. Possible that this was recorded at WMGM Radio Studios as was the first of the Miles Davis Nonet sessions in 1949.

According to Gunther Schuller, Moon Dreams was the last selection recorded at this session.
