Blues For A Reason

Blues For A Reason

'Blues For a Reason'(1984) was legendary trumpeter Chet Baker's only recorded collaboration with saxophonist Warne Marsh.

Artist: Chet Baker & Warne Marsh

Genre: Jazz

Label: Elemental

Release date:

It's strange to think that two of the greatest stars of "cool jazz," Chet Baker and Warne Mash, would never record together, given that they were nearly the same age, and that they both rose to fame in Los Angeles around the same period. However, that would have been the case if Gerry Teekens, founder of the Criss Cross label, had never had the bright idea of bringing them together in 1984. Surprisingly, they would end up cutting their only collaborative album, Blues for a Reason, in Monster, The Netherlands!.
