Complete Recordings (2 Cds Set)
Chet Baker, Norman Faye, Conte Candoli (tp), Frank Rosolino (tb), Art Pepper, Bud Shank (as), Phil Urso, Bill Perkins (ts), Bobby Timmons (p), Jimmy Bond (b), Lawrence Marable (d) & Jimmy Heath (arr.)
The complete recordings of Chet Baker and Art Pepper playing together, compiled for the first time on a single pack. Featuring Richie Kamuca and Carl Perkins.
Reunited here for the first time on a single pack, the collaborations between Chet Baker and Art Pepper were originally issued in such a disparate manner that its sometimes difficult to think of these recordings as a coherent body of work. Their first session, for example, was originally broken up and released on a variety of compilation albums. Their most famous album, "Playboys" was also released as "Picture of Heath" with a totally different cover but identical liner notes! The sessions for these albums, as well as a number of big band efforts, are all included here.
