Session Details: 

Fitzgerald and Bruyninckx differ as to which track has the personnel variance of Sleepy Matsumoto, and vocals. But listening to the tracks, Salt Peanuts/Vote for Dizzy definitely has vocals, so it stands to reason that is also the one that Sleepy plays on. -JS

 

Salt Peanuts is sung with new lyrics (no indication who wrote them. Hendricks and Diz?) and labelled "Vote Dizzy", but the composition is still Salt Peanuts in terms of melody and chords. -JS
