Session Details: 

Fitzgerald notes that the personnel is "speculative", and that the first track is possibly One Note Samba (hence why we identify it as Unknown, with One Note Samba in parenthesis). Additionally, the tune "Ole (For the Gypsies)" is confusing: there is a song by Coltrane called "Olé" and a song by Gillespie called "For the Gypsies". There is another session where "For the Gypsies" has been mislabeled "Olé", so I wonder if this is the same case here. -JS
