Chet Baker was a true icon of the West Coast Cool School of jazz with immense talent and proficiency as a trumpeter as well as a great singing voice which teamed with his good looks made for him set for stardom. Baker s breakthrough came when he joined Gerry Mulligan s quartet, however repeated brushes with the law including short jail terms for drug related offences meant that Baker s body of work was sporadic however rewarding to the listener. Disc 1 Chet , showcased solely instrumental ballads and is perfect example of mood setting jazz. Disc 2 Chet Plays Lemer & Loewe was one of the last he recorded in the US. The album plays tribute to Alan Jay Lemer and Frederick Loewe and their extensive Broadway catalogue. Disc 3 Chet Baker & Crew featured the quintet flying through eight west-coast jazz tracks, each member demonstrating exceptional ability and prowess. All tracks have been digitally remastered for optimum enjoyment of the work of a jazz phenomenon.
