Session Details: 

Lord lists Diz as vocals & conga & trumpet on both tracks, but the description in concertvault specifies vocals on Swing Low only. In terms of the conga, since it would be difficult for him to play conga and trumpet at the same time, it is presumed he plays conga on the first track while also singing, and then plays trumpet, only, on the second. -JS
