Format: Audio CD
In interviews as late as 1987 Chet listed this album as one of his favourites, and who would doubt his judgment? I think it's his best album from the sixties, a perfect showcase for Chet's varied talents. Whether you like the fleet player of fast bop (or post-bop, as is the case here), the lyrical trumpeter or the sensitive balladeer, it's all here. The uptempo tunes sound very "sixties" and modern and Chet's lines are firm, hard-driven and edgy but he never loses his human touch. As a vocalist Chet has never sounded better. He sings with fire, conviction and at times almost unbearable tenderness - "you're mine, you" and "The touch of your lips" send chills up your spine - and his rendition of Mel Tormé's "Born to be blue" is impressive and, indeed, bluesy. Anyone who claims that Chet isn't a singer should listen to these cuts. This American comeback album has long unduly been overlooked but it is a very strong statement from a poignant trumpeter and singer. If you love Chet, you should buy this one. You can't go wrong with it.

This is surely one of Chet Baker's finest studio albums, which highlights his strengths as a singer and jazz improviser in more less equal measure. His vocal delivery on "Born to Blue" and "Everything Depends on You", is languid and swings seductively. His Flugelhorn playing is similarly tasteful and unhurried even on uptempo numbers. The tunes are mostly very "whistleable", Baker makes no secret of the fact that he wanted to make jazz for a mass audience and this album brilliantly blends composition which still sounds modern with taste and long lasting appeal.

If you had never heard Chet Baker before this would be an excellent introduction. It's all here, smooth ballads beautifully sung, uptempo bebop numbers, meaningfull solos, first class supporting musicians on all the tracks, excellent recording quality to boot. This is a Cd to play again and again. Chet is quoted on the sleeve note as saying: 'To me reaching people is the most important thing...' and that he does. Listen to 'Born To be Blue' catchy but with real Jazz feeling, or 'A Taste of Honey' with Chet's intimate vocal over the composer's minimal piano accompaniement.

This music is probably as close to perfection as you can get without compromising genuine human warmth and feeling in its performance.
