Session Details: 

Fitzgerald notes that the personnel is "probable" and track times as "approximate". -JS

 

More importantly, however, is the situation with the track "Olé (For the Gypsies)". There is a composition by Coltrane entitled Olé, apparently another with the same title by Dizzy, and then a third title called For the Gypsies. Listening to samples of each tune online, they seem to be all unique from each other. It is unclear therefore which song this session is supposedly referring to. -JS
