Between Bruyninckx, Lord, Douglas Payne and Ruppli's Verve discography, it is difficult to ascertain the definitive track list, even personnel. Bruyninckx has a longer list, which feels like it might be more complete, so we will err on the side of more information rather than less. Payne and Lord only list tracks that Bruyninckx lists, but Bruyninckx lists others, too.-JS

the Mosaic Records website says that the tape for Sea Sounds was destroyed, hence the classification as "unissued". -JS

Also, "I Think That Maybe I Should Go Away" is not necessarily a different composition from Tadd Dameron's "I Think I'll Go Away". It's difficult to find recordings of the former that could be definitively compared sonically to the Dameron piece. -JS
