"Cool jazz" stars Chet Baker and Warne Marsh's only collaborative album!

Gatefold edition containing updated liner notes

"This combination works quite well. Recommended." — 4 Stars, AllMusic

"Blues for a Reason" stands out from much of the work of the period." — The Penguin Guide to Jazz

It's strange to think that two of the greatest stars of "cool jazz," Chet Baker and Warne Marsh, would never record together, given that they were nearly the same age, and that they both rose to fame in Los Angeles around the same period.

However, that would have been the case if Gerry Teekens, founder of the Criss Cross label, had never had the bright idea of bringing them together in 1984. Surprisingly, they would end up cutting their only collaborative album in Monster, The Netherlands!

This 180-gram audiophile reissue from Elemental Music is a special 180-gram gatefold edition with updated liner notes.
