A great late period Baker album is "No Problem", recorded in Denmark with the late great Irving "Duke" Jordan on piano (from Charlie Parker's classic 1947 - 1948 quintet), Nils Hennig Oersted-Pederson on bass (a long-time Oscar Peterson sideman) and Norman Fearrington on drums.

We'll have to get drunk on a Sunday or Monday together sometime.
