Session Details: 

Ellingtonia lists Jimmie Blanton and Billy Taylor as bassists for this broadcast. It is unclear if this is meant to imply two bassists, that each plays on some tracks, or that there is uncertainty about how is playing throughout. It is also unclear why this and the previous session are listed separately. - CD
