Here's the famous Chet Baker's concert in Koln in October 1955 featuring pianist Dick Twardzik,  Jimmy Bond, and  Pete Littman, plus guests on a couple of tracks, German reed specialists Hans Koller and Willi Sanner respectively on tenor and baritone sax.

A particularly soulful performance based on a strong and varied track list comprising some of Baker's favorite standards such as "My Funny Valentine" and "I'll Remember April" plus Twardzik's original "Yellow Tango". This concert is also sadly remembered as one of Twardzik's last performances before his premature death for an overdose just 12 days later.
