Session Details: 

This session appears on a very rare issue. So rare, in fact, that I can find no other evidence of it anywhere online besides lord and bruyninckx. Since I cannot find the titles of the tracks anywhere else, I have no idea who composed them, just that they were arranged by a combination of Bobby Tucker, Quincy Jones & Billy Byers. After carefully searching through Lord to find other appearances of like-titled tunes, and through google, wikipedia, discogs, allmusic and other online databases, I was able to arrive at pretty good educated guesses at the composers for these tracks, but certainly would welcome harder corroboration. -JS
