Session Details: 

Bruyninckx incorrectly lists the location as New York, but Ruppli, Jazzdisco.org, and Wikipedia both list it as Chicago. -JS

 

Most sources call track 3 "Pop's Confessin'", while wikipedia lists it as "Confessin' (Pop's)". The composition is the song also known as "I'm Confessin' (That I Love You)" with Diz doing an imitation of Louis Armstrong (e.g. Pops), so the way Wikipedia lists it is probably the most accurate descriptor. -JS
