  1. Margarine (Galper) - 9:37

  • Chet Baker - trumpet
  • Per Husby - piano
  • Terje Venaas (#1,2), Bjorn Kjellemyr (#3-5) - bass
  • Ole Jacob Hansen (#1,2), Espen Rud (#3-5) - drums

Baker recorded this Cadence LP in Norway, backed by a pair of fine Norweigan trios that in both cases include pianist Per Husby. In addition to Sam Rivers's "Beatrice" (a song that the trumpeter recorded numerous times) and the standard "Polka Dots and Moonbeams," this fine set includes interpretations of two Hal Galper songs ("Margarine" and "Night Bird") and Tadd Dameron's lesser-known "Gnid." Although a little loose in spots, this is an excellent date by the colorful trumpeter.
