Session Details: 

There is some discrepancy with this session. Lord doesn't list it at all, at least not completely--neither under Holiday nor Newton. Varela only lists one track--the one, presumably, that Holiday sings on. Jazzarchaeology states that the personnel is 'probably the same as 4/20/1939', but since Varela gives us more info in that respect, we are using his personnel list.
