CHET BAKER - CHET

$24.98

2013 Vinyl LP import reissue of 1959 album. Trumpeter Chet Baker's specialty was romantic ballads, and his 1959 album "Chet" is loaded with 9 classics. Soft and nuanced in the cool jazz style, Chet is joined by jazz stars Bill Evans, Pepper Adams, Herbie Mann and Kenny Burrell. Baker's last session for Riverside was an all instrumental session of ballads. Chet features an all-star lineup including jazz heavyweights Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Herbie Mann and Kenny Burrell. Together they craft an instrumental gem that is worth reissuing on the warm uncompressed joys of vinyl. Some of the key tracks are "September Song," "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" and "Alone Together."
