Dear Mr. Meyers,

I hope you'll excuse the naivete (and lateness) of this query:

Your Salle Pleyel 'Paris Concert" interview ("Bob Brookmeyer, Part 2") reminds me of a minor mystery, one that has perplexed me for years. Several of the tunes played at the Salle Pleyel were recorded earlier (I think) by Mulligan's trumpet/baritone sax quartet. Chet Baker's solos on those earlier versions are identical (I think) to those recorded on "Paris Concert" by Brookmeyer. Does this mean that Brookmeyer copied out Baker's solos? That Mulligan required him to duplicate Baker? Vice versa? Or something else?

Are there other instances of this practice in jazz recordings?

Like I say, I've always wondered.

Thanks and Best Wishes,

Mike
