However, in his notes to the session, he says, "Panassié says all the
trumpet solos are by Stark, but some sound to me more like Stewart."
I imagine Allen went with Stark because he assumed or knew Panassié had
played them to Stewart, but I can't find the original reference and Walt
doesn't give one. The record is not in Discographie Critique so it doesn't
come from there.

- Thank you John and Howard!
I also think that whoever is soloing first and last is not the same
player as in the middle passage. Probably Stewart and Stark, then.
