Presented here are the complete existing recordings of Jimmy Raney and Sonny Clark playing together. Iconic guitarist Jimmy Raney and legendary pianist Sonny Clark’s paths crossed only during a European tour promoted by Leonard Feather in 1954, which included concerts in several countries and also allowed Feather time to organize a few studio dates here and there. The wonderful quartet date presented here was originally issued on Jimmy Raney Quartet Visits Paris (Vogue LD201).

This edition also adds all existing alternative takes from the date, as well as the only other conjunct recordings of Raney and Clark, all of them taped during the same European tour: two quintet sides also featuring Swedish tenor saxophonist Gösta Theselius, and two live jam session tracks backing the great Billie Holiday,on both of which they play extended solos.
