Chet Baker Quartet Plays Standards

CD (Item 45031) Universal (France), 1956 -- Condition: Mint

At the height of his fame in 1955, Chet Baker went to Paris and cut some of the best music of his career. Baker's greatest strength was interpreting classic melodies, deftly employing his horn to convoy the emotion behind the song instead of offering razzle-dazzle chordal improvisations. Baker's American pianist had just died before this session was cut. Clearly upset, the trumpet player carried on, and channeled those bereft emotions into his playing. Chet putting his all into standards -- you can't go wrong.
