This reminds me of my visit to Boris Rose's home in Manhattan (somewhere on 
10th or 11th Street). He kindly showed me his huge collection and tape 
recorder room as well as gave me his list which indicated an exact date of 
his recording John Coltrane @ Birdland in the '50s and '60s. These were very 
useful for my first edition of Coltrane book which was authorized by IJS, 
published 1995.
Probably does IJS have the same list? I would come to IJS and check it out 
in my next visit (probably by June 2011.)
Thank you for this info from WSJ.
