Note: (1) Leonard Feather's Verve V6-8743 liner notes indicate titles on side two of this release ("Ricardo's Dilemma," "Twelve Tone Blues [Patterns for Orchestra]," "Sidewalks of New York" and "Greensleeves") make up Volume 2 in the "Encyclopedia of Jazz in the Sixties" series - which was never issued. (2) "Patterns for Orchestra" [mx. 101576] was to be issued on V6-8743, but "Twelve Tone Blues" was accidentally used in its place and mistakenly titled as the former.
