5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Value, 31 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 8 Classic Albums [Audio CD] Chet Baker (Audio CD)
What amazing value this is? Yes, Eight Chet Baker albums covering a four year period from 1953 - 1957. There are 84 tracks in total. Most of his best known tunes are on here - apart from `Let's Get Lost.' Chet died at 58 but left a legacy of understated trumpet mastery and a voice as soft as most of his playing.
Three of these albums are instrumentals which is a little unusual - though perhaps not, as Chet was first and foremost a musician and trumpet player.
Chet and Strings does what it says on the cover!
The introduction of Johnny Pace as his lead singer is interesting as this was JP's only album. He unbelievably died even younger than Chet! Actually, this album is quite good.
`Playboys' claim to fame is that Hugh Hefner (Playboy Magazine) threatened to sue if the album cover was not changed? This was eventually done but the original is shown here.
On the album `Embraceable You,' Chet plays & sings as part of a trio of just trumpet, bass & guitar.
There is an error on cd three - it gives the listings for `The Best of Chet Baker,' which of course it's not! A minor thing which may have now been corrected?
