Session Details: 

Bruyninckx says, "D7VB2932-1 "Algo bueno" is identical to the previously listed "Woody'n you" (Mx. D7VB3091) from
the next session." That is, the track from 12/22/1947 called "Algo Bueno" sounds identical to the track attributed to this session, entitled Woody 'n You. What is unclear is: which tune is it? I can't find either recording to listen to, so that must be discovered. Also, Bruyninckx says just that "cp" is on focal. I am assuming this is Chano Pozo, not Cecil Payne, since Pozo often does vocals. -JS
