Album Notes
Broken Wing features Baker in excellent form back in 1979. Phil Markowitz was one of the most sympathetic pianists who worked with the trumpeter during his later years, bassist Jean-Francois Jenny Clark proves to be superb both as a soloist and as an accompanist, and Jeff Brillinger gives Baker just the swinging support and interplay that he needs. The repertoire is fresh, consisting of two standards that are not played all that often anymore (Baker's voice is in better-than-usual shape during "Oh You Crazy Moon," his lone vocal) and a song apiece by Richi Beirach, Wayne Shorter and the trumpeter himself (the wistful "Blue Gilles").

-From the liner notes, Scott Yanow
