Session Details: 

Track #5 is labeled as "I Got Rhythm In My Nursery Rhymes", which reflects how many subsequent issued versions name this composition. It should be, however, correctly called 'If I Had Rhythm In My Nursery Rhymes", as can be confirmed by listening to the track itself. -JS.

The Lord Jazz Discography is the source of for the Basie tracks without Holiday: this should be checked against Chris Sheridan's authoritative Basie Discography. -TS
