Thank you for your interest and help. Yes, Peterson had only one shot
on his film on a borrowed camera... A genuine curse! Nevertheless, it
looks like the only visual testimony of this session.
Is there anybody from the Doctor Jazz website who could add something?
There are a few pages in the Lomax's book, and a few lines in the
Claude Jones' article published in 1962.
PS : any comment or correction on my article published on
www.thehidehoblog.com about Claude Jones will be much appreciated...
