Session Details: 

It is confusing trying to determine which tracks, if any, Carlos Patato Valdes plays on here. Bruyninckx says he plays on Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac, but Ruppli does not include him there. But in the wikipedia entry for the album that Swing Low... appears on, Valdes is included as part of the personnel. -JS
