Session Details: 

Once again, Sheridan labels the Gillespie tune "Jambo" as "Jambo Caribe". This may be an alternate title, but I highly doubt Gillespie wrote two separate songs, one called Jambo and one Jambo Caribe. I wonder if the mixup occurred because the album of Dizzy's that "Jambo" first appeared on was called "Jambo Caribe". But it is also possible that Diz himself called it both ways. -JS
