Isn't it funny? "East coast vs. West coast" debates are almost universal. In the 90's it was hip hop, in the 70's it was funk, and in the 50's it was - you guessed it - bebop. This CD was recorded in the thick of the bebop "East v. West" wars; Chet Baker, the quintessential West coast trumpet player with laid back sound meets a stunning east coast rhythm section, the bass and drums of which are from Miles Davis's fame. The results are unique, masterful and phenomenal.
