Dot Time Records is thrilled to announce the November 13th CD/Vinyl release of Lackerschmid/Baker: Quintet Session 1979. Quintet Session is the follow-up to Dot Time's critically acclaimed re-release of Wolfgang Lackerschmid and Chet Baker's Ballads For Two. A continuation of Lackerschmid's great adventure with one of the greatest trumpet players in the history of the art form, the album features the spirited duo of iconic trumpeter and vocalist Chet Baker and vibraphonist Wolfgang Lackerschmid alongside a stellar rhythm section made up of jazz luminaries Larry Coryell (guitar), Buster Williams (bass) and Tony Williams (drums).
Forty years after the remarkable recording session that spawned this release, Dot Time Records Legends Series is ecstatic to offer audiences another snapshot of the vitality of the jazz scene of yesteryear with this stunning document of a coalescence of five icons that shaped the jazz idiom over the course of their extensive careers.
