#1 - April In Paris

This 1955 recording is an instrumental and should just be credited to CountBasie (per Grammy Hall of Fame, Dave Marsh & Acclaimed Music). There was a vocal version of this song with Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Williams in 1956 but it's not this recording.

We'll take your word for it. Data fixed, thanks
