Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker, Jr. was born an early Christmas present for his parents on 23rd December 1929 he died on 13th May 1988).
He started out on the Trombone and not only played the trumpet but also the flugelhorn and he was a noted recorded vocalist.
Perhaps it was his two stints in the US army where he played in the bands that allowed him to develop his skills?

Chet had a hard life with his Heroin addiction causing him a lot of trouble. Prison terms in Italy- getting deported from Germany (where he had served in the US Army) and Great Britain.
Not to mention the beating he took which ruined his embouchure (the position the mouth has to take to play brass instruments) and prevented his being able to play until he had his dentures and mouth fixed.

There is a volume two with 7 of Chet's Classic Albums available.
7 Classic Albums 28 Classic Albums [Audio CD] Chet Baker by Chet Baker (2012) Audio CD

I've provided the track listing to help you see what's on them.

I also would advise you to go to Amazon USA and read the reviwers reviews there.
This series has had a few problems with sound in the past.

A quick read and check there should clear this up.
