his session was recorded at Studio Pathe-Magellan in Paris, between October, 25th, 1955 and February, 10th, 1956. This record is the third and last record for the Barclay label.

In response to an offer to Nicole Barclay, Chet Baker arrived in Paris in early September 1955. The 22 - or maybe 23 - he signed a contract for seven records ...(later replaced by 3). When Chet entered the studio Pathe-Magellan October, 25th, 1955 ,just one member of the original trio was always present: the pianist Dick Twardzik died of an overdose and drummer Peter Littman had gone home. Only Jimmy Bond on bass, was still there. Three titles have been arranged by the pen of Pierre Michelot - 'Chet', 'Dinah' - and the Christian Knight 'Vline’ . Chet so loved these arrangements that he decided to re-record them later in Los Angeles. November, 28th, 1955, Chet returned in the same studio, this time with piano Raymond Fol, Benoit Quersin on bass and Jean-Louis Viale on drums. Three titles were recorded : ' Alone Together ' and ' Exitus ' composed by Phil Urso and ' Once In a While’.
The day after Christmas , on December, 26th, there is an opportunity to Chet Baker and Bobby Jaspar to sustain a partnership that was established at the Club Saint-Germain since the beginning of the month. That day, in the All Stars, Maurice Vander replaces Rene Urtreger on piano. Two titles were recorded : 'Chekeetah' and 'How About You' . Chet Baker and Bobby Jaspar are in total harmony . It is regrettable that such a winning team was never reassembled .
Finally, February 10th, 1956, Chet recorded with a quintet 'Anticipated blues' and 'Tasty Pudding' with Jean -Louis Chautemps , Francy Boland, Edgar de Haas and Charles Saudrais .
