Session Details: 

Our source includes these notes: [1] On Peggy's Blue Skylight (track b) both Mingus and Grimes play walking bass (!), in different registers though.

[2] Bass and piano credits for Eat That Chicken are still unsolved.

Tom Lord lists Mingus as bassist and adds Grimes only for "Tijuana Table Dance."
