This is a "best of" culled from Chet Baker in Paris, a 4 CD set of which the only remaining CD in print is Vol. 2, "Everything Happens to Me".
Mood changes a lot or seems to. The first CD in the series, Chet was with arguably his best pianist, Dick Twardzik (sp?), and the tunes are upbeat originals. Then Twardzik died. This seems to have affected Chet, tunes from Vol. 2 "Everything Happens" are mostly the deeply melancholy, sad ballads and standards Chet is famous for.
This CD is a good panorama of Chet's best period, after leaving Gerry Mulligan, before his personal problems overtook him. Improved remastering on the recordings.
Alternately warm and romantic, sad, and cheerful.
