There is a purpose for space, it allows us to view what is not otherwise apparent and when the musical equivalent of reading between the lines is applyed to this recording one is offered a multitude of reflections. Chet Baker was well known for being sparing with muscal statements, but on this collection of recordings he goes one step further, almost implying more than what is actually said. Like a good book, it sets the scene perfectly but allows enough room for the listener (or reader) to enjoy a little creativity of their own. David Wheat builds hauntingly subtle chordal webs upon Ross Savakus' delicate bass framework, allowing Chet to take each tune breath takingly close to colapsing.

I came very late to Chet Baker. i had never even heard of him until late 2008 after seeing his name crop up a bit one various itunes celebrity playlists and giving him a listen. The was the second album I brought, after 'The Best of Chet Baker Sings.' A very beautiful, tender, soft, androgynous voice, perfect for late night unwinding. I quickly bought up everything going, as I do. Check out the book 'Deep in a Dream: The Long Night of Chet Baker' by James Gavin, a great read and the Bruce Weber DVD 'Let's Get Lost.'

This is very Romantic music but you don't have to be in a romantic mood to enjoy it. Whether it's his voice or trumpet Chet seems to hit just the right spot in your psyche to help you unwind. Restful, relaxing it is, but also very skilfully executed relying on minimal instrumentation to achieve its effect.

On seven of the tracks Chet sings accompanied only by acoustic guitar and bass, On five he plays trumpet only with the same accompaniement and on only one does he actually both sing and play trumpet.

All in all a unique album but difficult to categorise: is it pop? jazz? easy listening? or simply just amazingly good music!

Whilst I agree with all the other reviewers in unanimously giving this five stars, I'd like to chip in with my own take on this wonderful album. First of all, I was introduced to Baker via Bruce Weber's beautiful movie Let's Get Lost. That film leans heavily on Baker as vocalist. Since then, having thus far accumulated around 30 of his albums (and there are many, many more; Baker was very prolific!), I soon realised that, in Baker's own mind at least, he was primarily a trumpet player.

This gorgeous little album, a trio recording with guitarist David Wheat and bassist Ross Savakus, is largely vocal. I write about music a little professionally, and I'm familiar with such guitar and bass sidekicks in Baker's repertoire as Carson Smith, Jimmy Bond and Joe Mondragon (all bassists), minor but familiar names in the jazz pantheon, and of course such luminaries as guitarists Joe Pass and Barney Kessel. But Wheat and Savakus were new to me. It turns out David 'Buck' Wheat was a very interesting character, primarily a bass player (with the Kingston Trio, for example), who also made and sold novelty percussion instruments known as 'boo-bams' - drums made from large-width bamboo! - which can occasionally be heard on recordings by Baker and other artists. Ross Savakus is probably actually the Ross/Russ Savakus who is (marginally) better known as bassist on some folk-rock of the late sixties and early seventies, including some music by such household names as Dylan, Van Morrison, and Don McLean.

The guitar playing of bespectacled and balding beatnik hep-cat guitarist Wheat is a real revelation, for me at least, weaving delicate gossamer webs, both melodic and chordal, that bind the whole ensemble together.
