Recorded live in September 1953 at the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach, California but not released until 1985, this album captures Miles Davis jamming with the club’s house band, the Lighthouse All Stars. Chet Baker, on the bill at the Lighthouse that night, plays trumpet on two of these songs (though not with Davis); the two trumpeters are variously joined on these tunes by Rolf Ericson, Bob Cooper, Bud Shank, Lorraine Geller, Russ Freeman, Howard Rumsey and Max Roach.

“I sometimes jammed with some of the musicians of the Lighthouse and we made ​​a record. At that time, Chet Baker (was known as one of) the best young jazz trumpeters. He was California. He played at the Lighthouse one day I went to jam. Chet was a pretty nice guy, cool and good instrumentalist. But he knew as well as I that he had much copied me. At the meeting, he told me afterwards that knowing I was in the room had made ​​him nervous.”
