Vocalist Bill Williams (4) is credited on tracks 2-10 and 2-11, same for vocalist Sonny Carter on track 2-16, but there is no singer on those tracks. And there are uncredited backing vocals on "Bostic's Boogie Blues (Smoke Rings)" (2-12).

Liner notes and tracklist have trumpet player Blue Mitchell on each track from 2-7 (Moonglow, recorded April 7, 1952) to 2-15 (Liebestraum, recorded October 8, 1954).
But, according Chris DeVito et al. "The John Coltrane Reference", Routledge, New York (2008), p. 393-95., for tracks with Coltrane (2-7 to 2-9), it was not Blue Mitchell but Joe Mitchell (4).
Blue Mitchell on next tracks is confirmed, he was trumpet player in Bostic Orchestra at least from Dec. 17, 1952 session (2-10, 2-11) to May 27, 1954 session (2-14), according to tracklist on back cover of Earl Bostic - Blows A Fuse
