In 1955, Chet Baker prepared the first Europea tour of his newly formed quartet. The tour began in Holland in September 1955. It continued with stops in Germany, Switzerland and France.

In Paris, pianist Dick Twardzik died from a heroin overdose in his hotel room on October 21, 1955. He was only 24-years old and his early disappearance was a tragedy for the jazz world. Chet was marked for life by this tragedy and from this point forward his addiction would haunt him forever.

This album compiles material from three studio sessions made during that European tour. Side A presents music recorded right after Twardzik’s death, and Side B has tunes from the only two studio sessions recorded by Baker with Twardzik.
