Note that Lena Horne is listed in the program as Helena Horne. The members of John Kirby's Orchestra and Henry "Red" Allen's Orchestra are not listed on the program. Personnel entered here based upon membership of those groups at the time, so their presence on this concert is not certain. Meade Lux Lewis is listed among the performers on flyer, but he is not mentioned elsewhere.
