By now it has become commonplace for traveling American musicians to knock off a casual album or two for a local European label. Back in 1959, when Chet Baker left the United States for what was to be an extended overseas stay, such recording was decidedly a rarity. On this occasion, which was an authorized celebration of his arrival in Italy, the repertoire (featuring material by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, Sonny Rollins, and Tadd Dameron) gives Chet a solid basis to work from; the local supporting players, unknowns but all fully competent, do the same. The result is a very pleasant surprise: in many respects more satisfying than the work the then-troubled Baker had been doing just before leaving home.
