Issue Details: 

This issue contains tracks recorded during Chet Baker's December 9, 1957, after the other musicians from the earlier 4 tracks had left, Baker and his bassist and guitarist stayed behind and played these classics. Apparently, although the initial four tracks of the session were released around the time of recording, this issue--though a CD--is the first issue of this part of the session. -JS
