More than 30 years ago in London, The John Horler Trio played six consecutive nights as the rhythm section for the legendary Chet Baker. These landmark performances were recorded for personal use and managed to capture the raw, live excitement of those highly memorable evenings.
Three decades later, the original tapes have been meticulously restored. The first release in October 2016, Chet Baker Live in London, received considerable worldwide acclaim.
Given the success of the original release, Ubuntu Music decided to release the best of the remaining live recordings in a two CD set, Chet Baker Live in London Vol. II. We’re honoured to celebrate Chet’s great legacy in the company of his original rhythm section, The John Horler Trio.
