This emotionally charged 1974 concert finds two giants together for the first time in two decades. Baker's playing is infused with years of hard living; his breathy tone and pleading phrases make "My Funny Valentine" more poignant than ever.

Drummer Harvey Mason propels some joyful swing on "It's Sandy at the Beach," as the two hornmen step out together.
