He was known for his clear tone, reflective and subdued style, soft volume and careful, restrained approach in his choices of notes for melodic sequences. He played in an army of bands before working briefly with Charlie Parker in 1952. he then began a prominent association with ... Read more in Amazon's Chet Baker Store

Format: Audio CD
This has to be a very good album but I expect the music will not entirely be to every fan's taste.

After 'White Blues' I was a little disappointed with an album entitled as: 'The Best Of...' Undoubtedly this album is angled more towards bebop than the romantic, lyrical style that Chet Baker made his own and which no doubt endeared him to a wider public.

It has to be said that much of this music is outstanding in its drive and invention but it can sound relatively 'souless' compared, for instance, to that featured in 'The Best Of Chet Baker Sings'. Fans approaching Chet's music from it's more lyrical aspects will likely be disappointed with much of this set as a result. Although to be fair it's not all hectic, tightly focussed, fragemented instrumentals there are a sprinkling of tuneful ballads (Moonlight Becomes You) and easy going numbers (Sweet Lorraine)in addition. (I hasten to add these too are purely instrumental tracks)

In my humble opinion a better balanced album featuring more aspects of Chet's playing (and which is a arguably a better contender for the epithet 'Best Of') is 'Baby Breeze' (it also features some great vocalising from Chet on several numbers).
