Session Details: 

Source: On-hand Impulse IMPD-254. Lord & Bruyninckx are the source for the session order. Otherwise, both are incorrect in many ways. For instance, "Dedicated to James Brown" is a spliced version of "Three for a quarter, one for a dime" and should not be listed twice within the session record. (The former may be the original session title, however. See liner notes to the Impulse CD for this information.)


I have followed the personnel/track listing in the CD notes on the question as to who is playing bass on which tracks. I do not hear two bass players on "Keep","Lady","Sylvia,"Wedding" "June" and "Sentimental Mood."What I  do hear is an exceptionally strong walking bass player using very high-set strings in the classic style, whom I take to be Worrell.  The Impulse notes and personnel list contradict each other on this question; Lord & Bruy are of no use  in resolving it.
