Session Details: 

There is another session in Rome, in early 1960 http://jdisc.columbia.edu/session/dizzy-gillespie-early-1960

The possibly curious thing about these two Roman sessions are that: Bruyninckx and Jazzdisco.org do not list the late september session and Fitzgerald's jazzdiscography.com does not list the early 1960. Also, they have different set lists. Of course, it's possible they are entirely unrelated, but something about the vagueness surrounding the exact date, plus the similar group and location, lends itself to discussion. -JS
