The date is correct tot he best of my knowledge, Brian. This concert was 
recorded right after Louis and the all-stars came back from his Africa 
tour in 1956. Some of the Africa concert was seen in the documentary 
"Satchmo The Great" which was filmed in 1956. The Great Chicago Concert 
album was a great gem, one of my personal favorites.
