Chet without Stan

Crossvick

Although mentioned, there is no Stan Getz here. However, you will find Herb Geller (as) on "Well You Needn't". Other solists are : Walter Norris (p); John Schroeder (g); Lucas Lindholm (b). Those four solists are members of the NDR-Bigband. The other orchestra is the NDR Radio Orchestra Hannover.

They Say All Music Guide

Despite a rough up-and-down life, Baker remained an excellent trumpeter to the end of his career. This concert, performed two weeks before his mysterious fall out of an Amsterdam hotel window (and his last known recording), is a near-perfect summation of his career. The emphasis is on his trumpet playing and Baker, whether backed by a symphony orchestra, a big band or playing in a small group with altoist Herb Geller, is in inspired form. This double-CD set is also available as two separate CDs and, in one form or another, is highly recommended. – Scott Yanow
