1 - BAKER, CHET - CHET - (LP) 
DOXY


Every musician has his area of expertise and for Chet Baker that area was the ballad. Therefore, this album dedicated entirely to ballads, gives listeners a chance to hear Baker doing what he does best.and when Chet Baker does what he does best, he does it better than any other trumpet player in the history of jazz. For this session, recorded on 30 December 1958 at NYCs Reeves Sound Studios, the poster child of West Coast cool jazz (who had just turned 29) assembled a superlative East Coast sextet that featured the unusual front-line combination of flute (Herbie Mann), trumpet (Baker) and baritone (Pepper Adams), departing occasionally from this format, however, to showcase the guitar playing of Kenny Burrell. Pianist Bill Evans, Philly Joe Jones (drums), Paul Chambers (bass), all well-known for their association with Miles Davis, and all some of the top names in jazz are also featured here, along with drummer Connie Kay of the Modern Jazz Quartet. This album represents some of the last studio work Baker did before emigrating permanently to Europe. It also includes one of Bakers own compositions, "Early Morning Mood", recorded at the same studio and with the same line-up on 19 January 1959, as a bonus track.

4 - BAKER, CHET - IN MILAN - (LP)

The king of West Coast Jazz caught in Milan during his first European trip. The band assembled for these sessions features some of the best Italian Classic Jazz musicians of the time. The basic quartet includes Chet Baker (trumpet) Renato Sellani (piano) Franco Cerri (bass) and Gene Victory (drums). However, that unit is often upgraded to a sextet with Glauco Masetti (alto sax) and Gianno Basso (tenor sax). The cool spirit of Baker's music lives through some inspired fluid performances of American Bop classics such as Miles Davis' "Tune Up" and Charlie Parker's "Cheryl Blues."
