Session Details: 

According to Varela, the four tracks that Billie Holiday recorded for the film 'New Orleans' occurredon 9/11/1946. Lord combines all the tracks from the film into one big session with dates (september 11-October 1946), but it appears still that Holiday only sings on four of those tracks. Since Varela is giving more specific information, we are keeping the Holiday session separate from the others.
