Great set of standards,
This review is from: Plays Standards (Audio CD)
This material, recorded in Paris for Barclay brefly after Dick Twardzik's death in 1955, hasn't received as much publicity as the recordings with Twardzik, but that doesn't mean it's bad. True, this session was recorded with a rhythm section that Baker wasn't familiar with, and doesn't sound as confident as the earlier session, but it's (in my very humble opinion) still better than much of the material recorded for Pacific Jazz, and it has just been reissued in the very competitively priced "Jazz in Paris" series, so this is well worth the money.
