Coleman Hawkins 1962? Sam Woodyard drums, Major Holley bass?

This is an unmarked photo of Paul Motian's. I'm not quite sure of when or where. Paul did play a few gigs with Coleman Hawkins via Eddie Costa around 1958. Hear the stories, Coleman Hawkins albums that Paul owned and the 3 albums Motian recorded with Eddie Costa: Eddie Costa Quintet, The House of Blue Lights, Guys and Dolls.
