Let me know if you can identify the unknown songs and whether or not you think it's Charlie Haden or Wayne Darling on bass. Updated: My conclusion is that Wayne Darling came to the gig or was staying at the same hotel. I did find a set list from a gig earlier in the tour. See notebook images below. However, a new mystery: It's not Dewey Redman nor a tenor on 'Cheryl'.

Let me know if you can ID the last song.
Update: Thanks to Fischer Oe for asking- I sent the song to Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano and they identified it as Le Voyage. And also said it's Billy Drewes on tenor sax, not Jim Pepper.
