It's worth noting that the track arrangements on the CD provide the complete cues of music, which is different compared to how the tracks are presented on screen. Also, most of the episode is full of diegetic scoring when characters are performing music. The majority of the cues are actually adaptations of famous jazz pieces originally composed by other musicians that Joel McNeely adapted and arranged with his own score. The DVD and TV credits also provide an extra three minutes of music.
