Session Details: 

A session with the same personnel took place on November 20, 1965. There was some uncertainty concerning the session personnel for that session, and the same pertains to this one as well. Jazzdisco.org notes that it was EITHER Herbie Hancock OR Roger Kellaway on piano. And that is was EITHER Grady Tate OR Sol Gubin on drums. In both cases, we have included both individuals in the personnel to reflect the possibilities, and to keep both names associated with the session. Also, Bob Ashton is on saxophones (plural), it is unclear which saxophones he plays. Additionally, multiple personnel are on multiple instruments, and it is unclear which instrument(s) each personnel plays on which track.
