This session, recorded at Studio Pathe-Magellan October 11, 1955 in Paris, is the first of three recordings for the Barclay label between 1955 and 1956. Chet, with Richard "Dick" Twardzik on piano, Jimmy Bond on bass and Peter Littmann on drums, performs the beautiful compositions of Robert L. "Bob" Zieff. A masterpiece!!!

Reissue using the original photos from Jean-Pierre Leloir, remastered from the original master tapes. Limited edition 750 copies — 180-gram vinyl pressed by Optimal in Germany.

Founded in 2011 by Fred Thomas, Sam Records presents this first reissue. Sam Records' repressings pay tribute to the people — the musicians, producers, labels, photographers, graphic artists and sound engineers — who created the original recordings that have become enduring legends of 1950s and '60s jazz.

"Significant (was the work of) Fred Thomas, head of the French label Sam Records. His 'replica reissues' reproduced very rare LPs issues on European labels in the 1950s, down to the sleeves themselves, and the musical choices were inspired, resurrecting recordings from important musicians, some of them lesser known." — The Audio Beat, 2013 Awards

Reviewer: Scott (Seattle)
From the beautiful flip-top cover recreation to the absolutely silent pressing – an amazing package. Obvious devotion to putting out a world-class reissue is evident in every aspect of this LP. Baker at his "coolest". Do not miss this small run limited edition. No compromise on sound here. Rich and warm with a clarity that puts this disc in the upper echelon of reissues. I can only see a bright future for Sam Records.
