Session Details: 

This session is reflected as having four tracks, with only three of the playtimes noted. Session information, primarily from jazzdisco.org, notes that four songs were performed on this date. However, according to other sources (allmusic.com and discogs.com), it seems that perhaps only three songs were performed, as only three songs are noted in these two sources. Perhaps, we can infer that four songs were performed but only these three songs were issued together (while "The House I Live In" was indeed issued, but separately). In any case, allmusic.com and discogs.com only provide three songs for this recording session, and their repective playtimes. That is why track playtimes for only three of the songs are available.
