Among these formidable soloists, one above all blesses the compilation: Chet Baker.
Baker, an icon going beyond music alone, lived one of his most rocambolesque and artistically peculiar seasons in the Belpaese. When touring the country in the summer of 1959, he opted to stay won not only by the beauty of the place but also by the energetic and adventurous jazz scene. Given his precarious financial conditions, constantly undermined by his weakness for drugs, Italian jazz musicians made a great show of solidarity by including the American trumpeter and singer in their orchestras and sessions.
