Session Details: 

There is some controversy around the fifth track. Both Jazzdisco.org and Ruppli's book list this as an unissued, untitled, original Dizzy Gillespie tune. Only Bruyninckx lists it as 'Ungawa' and says it was issued on the same album that the 2/17/59 track of Ungawa was included. However, this seems like a mistake, as there is no indication that two tracks of Ungawa were on the album in question, and furthermore, taking two sources (one of which is online and perhaps 'fresher') against the one seems prudent. -JS
