Image of Chet Baker


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

Unevenness isn't always a mixed blessing. 22 May 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The lengths to which recording companies are going to recycle much of the "classic" material in their vaults, issuing all sorts of samplers and miscellanies at "attractive" prices and with catch-all titles, may ultimately cost the companies and the music more than the consumer. Verve and Columbia/Sony are the main offenders. Of all the "Ultimate," "Quintessential," Ken Burns' "Definitive," and "This Is Jazz" anthologies I've heard, I can't think of a single one that has enough focus or coherence to insure its being replayed much. They're at best points of reference, occasionally offering convenient access to a nugget or two. But besides detracting from the thematic and musical integrity of the original albums and playing havoc with the "historicity" of styles and sounds, these collections appear to contribute to the mentality that sees "albums" as little more than repositories for MP-3 files or the results of an amateur's indiscriminate CD-burning.
This Chet Baker "collection" is really two quite ordinary albums that, when played back to back, bring into bolder relief the limitations of each. The first album, "Chet Baker with Strings," is an early 50's session with dated orchestrations, dated piano voicings, and low fidelity. Moreover, unlike "Charlie Parker with Strings," the trumpet solos are not sufficiently distinguished to overcome their mundane settings. The 2nd album, a session from the mid-70's, is seriously blemished by the dated Fender Rhodes electric piano (moreso when doctored with a phase shifter) and the clearly excessive, depersonalizing reverb added to Chet's vocals. The best thing about the album is Paul Desmond's alto solos on "Autumn Leaves" and "Tangerine."

Great Music 29 April 2010
By L. Hunt - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Selections from various albums, from the 1953, 1954, and 1974. Nice liner notes by Tom Piazza. Illustrious sidemen include Ron Carter, Bob James, Paul Desmond, Bud Shank, Zoot Sims, Shelly Manne, Steve Gadd, Hubert Laws, Russ Freeman, Joe Mondragon, and others. Chet sings and plays on 2 tracks, and plays on the rest. Beautiful!

Amazing cd for jazz fans. It is a must. It covers the biggest hits from Chet Baker. Very recommendable. Should buy it!
