In 1952, with what became known as West Coast Jazz on the cusp of national and international recognition, the Hollywood area was buzzing with the music. One of the leading lights of what was a vibrant, multi-faceted jazz scene there was trumpeter Chet Baker, soon to rise to major stardom as part of the then recently formed Gerry Mulligan Quartet s tenure at a tiny club called The Haig. In June 1953, while Mulligan was away, Stan Getz, who was playing at the nearby Tiffany club, was invited by producer Dick Bock to fill for him at The Haig - John Bennett, the Haig s owner, recalled that Mulligan had suggested Getz as the ideal substitute in his absence, so the great tenor saxophonist joined Baker in the formation of the piano-less line-up for a couple of weeks. It would not be the last time they played together. Their paths were to cross throughout what would be two of the biggest careers in jazz, but their L.A. get together at The Haig was their first celebrated encounter.
