Session Details: 

Listening to the sample of "Clappin' Rhythm" on Allmusic.com, it appears that it is just a funkily arranged version of "I Got Rhythm", as Bruyninckx implies in his discography. The lyrics are basically the same, save for some scatting and improvising by Carroll, and so are the chords. -JS
