Jazz Live in Europe: Chet Baker in Oslo (1983)

In august 1983 Chet Baker had some concerts in Oslo (Norway) supported by the Norwegian pianist Per Husby and his trio. Two of those sets were published posthumously  in a rare CD some years after.

Chet plays some long solos and he never seems to get tired or run out of ideas. In addition of some his favorite tunes of Hal Galper and Tad Dameon he does some nice playing on the standard Polka Dots and Moonbeams, a tune he didn't play much in those years.

The recording quality is not excellent, for a lot of talking and other noises, but the Chet performance lives them down.
