Session Details: 

The sessions entitled "Jazz for Breakfast at Tiffany's" are listed (in both bruyninckx and lordisco) as two separate session, apparently, since the personnel are vastly different. However, with no month or date attributed to either, it's not possible to say for sure. Nevertheless, I have listed them as separate, (a) and (b).

 

Note on playtimes: with the exception of Fantastic Waltz, which was issued separately from the other session tracks (and can be found through Allmusic), neither Bruyninckx nor Lordisco say the actual playtimes. At allmusic.com, these tracks are listed on the issue A study in jazz/breakfast at tiffany's. While the actual issue VS 3027 and VS 3028 are listed on allmusic without play times for tracks, the CD re-issue of these original issues do have them, so I have used that information here.

Bruyninckx and Lord only list Matrix numbers for the first two tracks.
