The perfect setting for Chet Baker in his latest years was in a quiet trio with guitar and bass. This 1992 CD brought out a previously unreleased, but well-recorded live set in which Baker is joined by guitarist Philip Catherine and bassist Jean-Louis Rassinfosse. Although there are a couple of typically indifferent vocals by Baker, his trumpet playing is in fine form throughout the date, which includes George Shearing's "Conception," "Tune Up" and the umpteenth remake of "My Funny Valentine."
