Chet Baker's trumpet and vocal approach was immediately recognizable and striking, especially in his prime. 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

Maybe the best record he ever produced. 30 Oct 2011
By Patrick King - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I know that's kind of a loaded title, but this record is spectacular. His vocal is still young and vibrant, touches all the soft spots. His trumpet playing leaps from wild to sultry and his band is made up of players who are absolutely his equals. They move together like the parts in a new BMW. I'm a huge Baker fan and love his work from beginning to end. This record represents a paramount moment in a very unusual career. It's a portrait of the artist at the height of his power with everything around him necessary for perfection. If you love Baker, you will be in ecstasy. I can't stop listening to it.

This is simply one of the greatest LPs of the 1970s.

From the enigmatic cover to the respectful musicianship, She Was Too Good To Me is a reminder that while fusion was tearing down the walls, some older genres of jazz continued to prod forward into new atmospheres.

A band of top notch players was assembled for this comeback album for Chet Baker and there's nothing on it that could be described as boring or run-of-the-mill. It is simply awesome.

If you buy this as a gift for the right person, they'll love you forever.

Review of Chet Baker - She was too Good 26 Dec 2010
By JLH - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Not typically a huge fan of Baker's stuff, primarily because he slaps more vocals than horn work on many of his discs, but this one is definitely a keeper. The 'Autumn Leaves' cut is top notch and his playing overall is a demonstration of his best. This Baker compilation from CTI Records is much appreciated from this listener. It's a CD that I intend to wear out a few times through the years. This CD review only missed the five stars because it had one too many vocal cuts - just never could get into Chet Baker's voice, unless it was sandwiched within extended trumpet/flugelhorn work.

A great jazz cd 11 Jan 2013
By Frank C. Taglieri - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD has all the qualities of a fine project. All #1 players,great charts, and even better solos by all the guys. And Chet Baker's vocals are very moving and sung with a lot of feeling. Especially ''She Was Too Good To Me.'' This is a ''classic'' album. I recommend it very highly. Frank
Chet and CTI, a wonderful pairing 17 Nov 2013

This is the CD that Chet Baker made for CTI Records. Great line-up, great sound, great tunes, and of course great Chet Baker.
