In the mid 50s with Cool Jazz at its peak in LA, the pin-up young man with the horn, Chet Baker, formed his own group for the first time, with the pianist, Russ Freeman. Together they popularised their new style, packing jazz clubs and concert halls and producing a string of hit recordings.

The young star of the jazz piano tradition, Urquhart, teams up with Chet expert, trumpeter, Colin Steele, to recreate a magical moment in jazz history.
