Joe or John "Red" Kelly?

Jack McVea had a trumpet player in 1946-1947 named (it would seem) Joe "Red" Kelly.   Discographies seem to list this name alternatively as John "Red" Kelly and Joe "Red" Kelly.  The new Mosaic Black & White Set lists the trumpet player on the "Open the Door Richard" session as "John "Red" Kelly" but then lists the trumpet player on the immediate follow-up session for Black & White as "Joe Kelly."  Presumably, this is the same person?   It sounds like the same guy in both sessions to me.  He gets off a really nice solo on Bulgin' Eyes from the Open the Door Richard session despite flubbing a few notes.
