In 1998, to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Chet Baker, Enrico Rava and Paolo Fresu, stimulated and supported by the promoter Mario Guidi, conceived the project (which took shape in 1999) of a series of concerts dedicated to Chet Baker. The tribute to the great trumpet player marked the re-creation of an atmosphere, crystallized in those golden '50s, the years of troubled youth of Baker, to which most of the songs can be traced back. Following the highly successful tour, this CD was released, featuring the quintet of Enrico Rava and Paolo Fresu, Stefano Bollani (piano), Enzo Pietropaoli (bass), and Roberto Gatto (drums).
Recorded on 17 - 18 May 1999 at Studio Diapason, Roma
