Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Jazz Monthly" (Issues 158-166, 1968). p. 15: "This is especially so in 'Capricorn moon', a deliberate, almost processional, piece that is a sequence of long solos (Brown explains the title by saying, 'I was born on September 8th, 1935. I'm Virgo, Capricorn moon, Pisces rising')."

Note: A speculative time of 7pm gives this combination.
