Session Details: 

As is evident, there are three different versions of "Magic Summer" on this soundtrack. They are described as 'vocal version', 'orchestral version' & 'piano version'. Without being able to listen to the sountrack, we are making an assumption that the vocal version is with the whole group backing Leola Jiles, while the piano version is a solo piano, without any of the other musicians.
