Session Details: 

For some reason, chetbaker.net does not list Jordu, probably because Baker doesn't play and that site is supposed to be a complete Chet Baker discography. Chetbakertribute.com and Lord are where we discovered the existence of that third track. Again, if there were at least a known author of chetbaker.net, we could ask why s/he didn't just indicate that Baker lays out during that track, since that would be a complete and accurate representation of what happened.

Also, although it is called "Half Breed Apache" on the issue and in chetbaker.net, it is apparently the same as the song "Cherokee", but sped up. This is according to allmusic, and hinted at in Lord. -JS
