Session Details: 

In Bruyninckx, Dizzy and the other musicians are described as "accompanying" Joe Carroll. This would imply Carroll should be the leader, but he is only listed as singing on two of the four tracks. For this reason we are splitting the leader title to both Carroll & Dizzy. -JS 

Also, Jazzdisco.org lists this as occurring on February 22, 1953, while Bruyninckx doesn't include an exact date, just the month. This seems improbable, as it would mean Dizzy played with at least 3 ensembles, in 2 locations over 25 tracks all in a single day. Not that that is impossible, but since Bruyninckx implies doubt about that, we are following him. -JS
