"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

this is the simple condition:

AND  SU.sessionStart < '2015-09-01 10:10:00'
AND SU.sessionEnd > '2015-09-01 08:00:00'

nothing else is needed

Problem are the OR's. You don't need them:
 (SU.sessionStart between '2015-09-01 08:01:00' AND '2015-09-01 09:59:00')
AND (SU.sessionEnd between '2015-09-01 08:01:00' AND '2015-09-01 09:59:00')
