Session Details: 

 As this was part of a TV Broadcast, ('The Art Ford Jazz Hour'), there were other singers and artists playing at different times throughout the night. For our purposes, each marquee name should thus be treated as a different 'session', since those songs were ostensibly presented as their own unit. For the rest of the broadcast personnel, see Lord's listing. 

Also, there is a little discrepancy in terms of personnel, but we are leaning with Varela's information.
