Session Details: 

LOTS of problems and discrepancies on this session, but jazzdiscography.com has the accurate version. Lord (as he is wont to do) separates the track that Monk plays on into another session, but is essentially correct as well. jazzdiscogs, however, lists Woody'n You as occurring on this session, which is incorrect, and doesn't mention the track with Monk on it. -JS
