Matthias Winckelmann writes: "This is the last recording of legendary Chet Baker. The producer of NDR radio in Hamburg (who had set in with Chet at a Hamburg jazzclub as a drummer many years ago which was an unforgettable experience for him) had asked Chet what his favorite project would be, carte blanche. Well, he answered that he would love to record with a quintet of good friends, a jazz big band and a symphonic orchestra. All were provided and the result is a breath taking event indeed. Chet had recorded for many records in many years, we had met in the '70ties in Paris and later in New York where I did several projects with him so it was a natural that this incredible performance was released by ENJA. This album put us on the map on a worldwide scale."
