For those who think Stan Getz is synonymous with the Bossa Nova craze of the early 60s, "Stan Meets Chet" is excellent look at this great jazz player prior to the success of "Jazz Samba" and "Getz & Gilberto." On this album, the tenor saxophonist is paired with jazz romeo trumpeter, and sometimes crooner (though not on this date), Chet Baker and the result is a solid, relaxed set. They are joined on this February 19, 1958 session by the all-Chicago rhythm section of Jodie Christian on piano, Victor Sproles on bass and Marshall Thompson on drums. The band's repertoire covers several standards including a terrific reading of "I'll Remember April," a "Ballad Medley" of "Autumn in New York" (with only Baker soloing), "Embraceable You" (featuring only the rhythm trio) and "What's New?" (a classic Getz performance), the Duke Jordan penned "Jordu" (omitting Baker), and the Getz original "Half-Breed Apache." My reason for only giving this disc four stars is that the laidback feel that makes this title so enjoyable also leads to its demise. Chet Baker repeatedly hits bad notes during the opening bars of most songs, most notably on "Autumn" and "Half-Breed," and the piano consistently sounds poor and almost out of tune, though Christian's playing itself is competent. In all, "Stan Meets Chet" is a welcome addition to my Getz collection, but I'll still be taking "Getz & Gilberto" to the desert island.
