Session Details: 

Lord and Bruyninckx note that there is a "possibility" that Mary Lou Williams replaces on the second track, but this cannot be said with certainty. The session itself is written as Mary Lou Williams Orchestra (Milton Orent/Frank Roth Orchestra) -- so the presence of pianist Mary Lou Williams leaves the possibility of Roth's replacement open, but it is not definitive.
