Session Details: 

For some reason, this particular session doesn't literally say that the track "I Love You" is the one by Cole Porter, and since we do not have the recording on hand, I guess we cannot be 100% but to whit: a) Mary Lou Williams recorded versions of the Porter tune on other occasions, b) It's a well known tune by a well known composer, and c) It's not that it's attributed to anyone besides Cole Porter, it's just that the listings on Allmusic and discogs for this session don't list any composer at all. -JS
