Limited 2CD Digipack Edition

NEVER BEFORE RELEASED CHET BAKER TRIO RECORDINGS!

“A rare window on a significant moment in Baker’s history.” – Ashley Kahn

Official release in cooperation with INA and the Chet Baker Estate.

Recorded in stereo by Radio France at La Esplanade de La Défense (July 17, 1983) and Le Petit Opportun (February 7, 1984). Both concerts are distinguished by the dazzling playing of the virtuosic pianist Michel Graillier, who performed regularly with Baker’s combos from 1977 until Baker’s death in 1988.

Includes a deluxe 40-page booklet with previously unpublished photos; with essays by producer and “jazz detective” Zev Feldman, journalist-author Ashley Kahn (author of Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece and A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album), French journalist-photographer Franck Bergerot, and Pascal Rozat of Ina France; and interviews with Riccardo Del Fra and Dominique Lemerle, the bassists on the ’83 and ’84 concert dates, respectively, and pianist Richie Beirach, also a former Baker sideman.

Mastered directly from the Radio France tape reels by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.
