5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent compilation of 50s cool., 24 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Chet In Paris (Audio CD)
I was put on to this record by Hans Peters, a Detroit audiophile who recommended it highly. I was not misled. This CD exemplifies the cool West Coast scene but in a European context. There are shades of Curthis Counce's trumpet player Jack Sheldon as the tracks bring back those memories of the Barclay Sessions. One of the best periods of Baker's recording career, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chet Baker at his Peak, 28 Feb 2010

This review is from: Chet In Paris (Audio CD)
Recorded in the mid 1950s in Paris this shows Chet at his best. This single cd apparently compiles tracks from 4 discs covering these sessions. It's mainly quartets with piano, bass and drums support and I think he's at his best with these small groups. His trumpet playing was really on top form at this period and although his voice is as good as it ever was I'm not a fan of his singing and I'm glad he doesn't sing much on this recording!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 24 Oct 2013
This review is from: Chet In Paris (Audio CD)
This is music which exudes 'cool', definitely up there with Chet's best. Every note played is the right note- his improvisation is flawless on this record. Always one of the few players to value melody over intricacy and this is made magical by the tone in these sessions- classic Chet. So smooth but with so much feeling, nobody quite like him.
