Format: Audio CD
This album was recorded mere weeks after Chet Baker and Bird were 'home recorded' at the same venue. Like that album - Bird & Chet: Live at the Trade Winds, 1952, the sound quality on this one is not spectacular, but the music is. In fact some of the same musicians from the earlier session are on this one.

Sadly there are no sound samples on this page at the time of this review. In a nutshell, this is mainly a horn-centric session with a young Chet Baker playing a lot more aggressively than he would on subsequent albums. There are two tracks where the ensemble downshifts and gives Al Haig a lot of room and places him in the front line: I'll Remember April and Sweet Georgia Brown.

Here are the tracks:
1. There'll Never Be Another You
2. Bernie's Tune
3. My Old Flame
4. Avalon
5. I'll Remember April
6. How High The Moon
7. Sweet Georgia Brown

If you love energetic music this is a great album. It was recorded live at the Trade Winds Club in Inglewood (a Los Angeles suburb) on August 4, 1952 and features the following line-up:

Chet Baker on trumpet with Ted Ottison on trumpet on tracks 5 and 7, Sonny Criss on alto on tracks 1, 3 and 7, Jack Montrose on tenor sax on tracks 1, 4 and 7, Les Thompson on harmonica on track 4, and a rhythm section comprised of Al Haig on piano, Dave Bryant on bass and Larry Bunker on drums.
