Session Details: 

Some weird stuff with personnel names here. Chetbaker.net lists the bassist as "Russ Saunders" but "chetbakertribute.com" lists the bassist as "Russ Savakus". Wikipedia has an entry for a session bassist "Russ Savakus" who recorded around the same time as Chet Baker, and there is NO entry anywhere of a bassist named Russ Saunders.

Likewise, chetbaker.net lists "Bob Trock" as the bassoonist, but elsewhere the bassoonist is listed as "Bob Tricarico". In this case, I have no idea which is correct, as there is little mention of jazz musicians by either name, let alone bassonists. -JS
