Total time
Liner notes
Jacques Chesnel


The track listing on the CD liner notes is almost completely wrong and it is fixed here, except for Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson tune (?) 'Blues For Some Bones', which appears also as 'John's Blues' on "Stormy & Funky Blues". Liner notes also list 'Stormy Weather' (even that is mistitled 'Stormy Monday') and 'I'll Remembered April' (sic) to have been played as part of Ellington medley, but neither of them are recognizable.
