  • Description

    180g virgin vinyl 2LP limited edition, gatefold sleeve with updated liner notes - the complete album + 2 bonus tracks.

    Chet Baker's relationship with Europe was longstanding, and filled with periods of mutual admiration and understanding, and others of mere tolerance. Live at Nick's was recorded in November of 1978. However, it wouldn't see the light until 1987, a year before Chet's untimely death.

    It finds the trumpeter in the company of New York-born pianist Phil Markowitz, with whom he had started working in February of that same year. He toured Europe with Chet in 1978 and 1979 and recorded with him for the last time in 1981 at the New York jazz club, Fat Tuesday's.

    Includes the bonus tracks: "Remember You" and "Love For Sale", from the same session but appearing for the first time ever on vinyl.

    Chet Baker: trumpet
    Phil Markowitz: piano
    Scott Lee: bass
    Jeff Brillinger: drums

    Recorded at Nick Vollebregt's Jazz Cafe, Laren, The Netherlands, November
    30, 1978. Produced by Gerry Teekens

    "Considering his erratic lifestyle, it is surprising how many good records Chet Baker made during his final 15 years. On this quartet outing with pianist Phil Markowitz, the quiet but swinging music is quite enjoyable and finds Baker in fine form." - **** Scott Yanow, AllMusic
