Session Details: 

It is difficult to find sources that say whether tracks are original compositions and who composed them. Ruppli helps, and the freshsoundrecords website gives track times for a very similar setlist--although they attribute it to a September 17, 1955 Carnegie Hall performance with these same people. -JS
