KOELN CONCERT 1955 VOL.1 (LP)
12" Vinyl D
First part of Chet Baker’s famous 1955 Köln concert.
Unreleased for many years, and now on two LPs, here's the famous Chet Baker's concert in Koln in October 1955 featuring pianist Dick Twardzik, bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Pete Littman, plus guests on a couple of tracks, German reed specialists Hans Koller and Willi Sanner respectively on tenor and baritone sax. A particularly soulful performance based on a strong and varied tracklist comprising some of Baker's favorite standards such as "My Funny Valentine" and "I'll Remember April" plus Twardzik's original "Yellow Tango". This concert is also sadly remembered as one of Twardzik's last performances before his premature death for an overdose just 12 days later. [info sheet from distr.]
