Muze PNote All 12 tracks here span the years 1953-1957 and were recorded when Chet Baker was at the peak of his popularity. Most of the tracks were recorded by his quartet, which included pianist Russ Freeman. Baker always favored romantic jazz standard ballads of yearning and seduction. His trumpet playing is extremely natural and melodic and disarmingly yet deceptively simple. He plays in clear toned, lyrical elongated lines that ever so subtly twist the melodies.
Muze PNote Included here are a beautiful moody version of Billy Strayhorn's classic "Lush Life" and three wonderful live tracks recorded in 1954 at the Tiffany Club in Los Angeles. A wistful "Embraceable You" and a melancholic "There's a Lull in My Life," featuring guitarist David Wheat, are two standouts. Baker's tenor vocals stick closely to the bare bones of the melody with just the subtlest variation, delivering the lyrics in long, straight-toned phrases barely above a whisper. These classic tracks are perfect for romantic late night listening.
