For much of the 1950s the so-called “East Coast” vs. “West Coast” debate raged on in modern jazz circles. Such arguments were not halted by this 1958 album, but it did give listeners some food for thought, for here Chet Baker, one of the stars of “cool jazz”, gets together with some of the most representative members of the East Coast’s “hard bop” school. On three long tracks Chet teams up with Johnny Griffin, one of the most talented tenors of his day (associated largely with Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers) as well as a stand-out rhythm section featuring pianist Al Haig, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. This all-star rhythm section drives Chet through tunes like Miles Davis’ “Solar”, and adds texture and lift to ballads like “Blue Thoughts”, “Polka Dots” and “Moonbeams”, creating an album unlike any other Chet had ever recorded.
