Session Details: 

The songs from Lalo Schifrin's suite "Gillespiana" (Tracks 1-5) are part of a single musical suite, but since Fitzgerald bothered to write down the track times for each section, we have replicated that here.  Also, Doug Payne's Schifrin discography suggests that this could have been recorded on the 20th of November. However, based on both Bruyninckx and Fitzgerald, it appears unlikely. -JS
