This album is one of Chet's best of his later recordings, for a live performance the sound is brilliant, well worth buying, they don't come much better.

For All We Know - Chet Was the Best 15 Nov 2010
By Harvey P. Getz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although Miles Davis' masterpiece "Kind of Blue" might be the most listened to jazz album of all time-and it deserves to be-jazz fans should take note that "Chet Baker in Tokyo" more than holds its own as far as musical quality and inventiveness are concerned. To add to the intrigue, Miles, Evans, Coltrane, Adderley, et.al., were at their musical peaks when "Blue" was recorded. Chet, on the other hand, because of his unpredictability brought about by his much chronicled addiction, was considered by many critics to be a couple of decades past his peak . Yet, on that magical night in Tokyo, with dentures firmly in place, the jazz icon displayed incredible technique, ideas and control on such challenging tunes as "Seven Steps to Heaven," and "Four." With the masterful support of a rhythm ensemble reminicent of the best of trios that painted a special satisfying texture to the Stan Getz and Miles Davis groups, Baker played the most exciting rendition of "My Funny Valentine" that I've ever heard from Chet or anyone else. Perhaps most suprising for a musician not known for his range and technical dexterity, Baker's flurry of perfect notes formed a magnificent weave of spellbinding phrases. Solos by the swinging and lyrical Harold Danko on piano paced by the highly inventive bassist, Hein Van Der Geyn, and a Tony Williams like performance by drummer, John Engels, made the moments when Chet wasn't performing so pleasing and captivating to this listener that, at times, I nearly forgot that Chet was the headliner.

If the ballad, "For All We Know" fails to tug at the listener's heart strings, then he/she knows little of the passion that gives jazz its soul. Not only was his trumpet playing exciting and elegant, Chet's haunting vocal rendition of "Almost Blue" equaled his classic 1950's performance of "Everything Happens to Me."

From time to time, I wonder if those Japanese jazz fans understood how fortunate they were to watch and listen to a revitalized Chet Baker at his very best on that magical evening in Tokyo.

An Excellent Concert from Another Star 16 May 2012
By Michael K. Kivinen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This late career (1987) recording finds Chet in top form, backed by an absolutely stellar combo. You would never guess that the featured artist on this album is the same withered husk seen in Bruce Weber's "Let's Get Lost," a documentary filmed in the months preceding this performance. Chet's playing on the uptempo numbers (e.g. "For Minors Only" and "Four") is absolutely on fire but never gratuitously flashy. His rendition of Elvis Costello's "Almost Blue" more than reciprocates the respect and admiration Costello paid Baker by writing the song with him in mind and having Baker play on his song "Shipbuilding." On "One Night in Tokyo" Chet delivers the ultimate interpretation of "Almost Blue," starting with perhaps the most lyrical trumpet solo of his long, erratic career and then following it with what I consider his finest vocal performance. The take of "My Funny Valentine," Baker's signature song, is also remarkable, not only for the sensitivity and nuance of Baker's playing and singing, but also for how his quartet really opens up and extends the song. John Engels, the drummer on this outstanding album, was quoted in Jeroen de Valk's "Chet Baker: His Life and Music" as saying, "It may sound sentimental, but Chet opened something up inside me. He went deeper than anyone else. Chet came from another star. He was sent here to convey his message. Now he's back on the star he came from." One listen to "One Night in Tokyo" will show you what he meant.

Excellent CD 7 April 2011
By Robert D. Young Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a great CD, the playing is excellent throughout. Chet was in top form and this has been in my car CD player now for close to two months. Chet's playing draws the listener in, he takes a simple line and expands on it always making the result sound warm and lyrical, sometimes even exhilarating, Chet was an underrated (by many critics) master musician. He was almost always playing off the top of his head and making it sound pretty rather than seeming overly complicated although he could hold his own with the technical boys.

historic 25 Jan 2014
By jim norton - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is wonderful opportunity to hear one of the true greats of jazz playing at his best and the fact that the concert occurred near the end of his tragic life adds a special poignancy to the event. Every cut is a terrific and the long versions of the songs allow for a lot of lyrical exploration and interchange among the very talented members of the ensemble. The unchallenged center of this, though, is Chet Baker -- what a talent, what a soul, what a loss. So glad I bought this set.

It's not about the singing... 12 July 2012
By Stephen W. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Well, of course it is. But moreover, Chet Baker creates an atmosphere, a mood, a memory. Few artists can transmit these things. It's his sound, who he was, how he lived, what he did. I don't want to sound sappy, but if this doesn't reach you then just go on to the next thing...
