Although always recognized as a trumpeter with unsurpassed lyrical qualities, Chet Baker had many ups and downs in his long career. The very late 1950s was not an up period: the West Coast label to which he was under contract readily allowed Riverside to borrow him as leader on four albums. Most of them were extremely uneven, but this one definitely worked. It had a strong basic concept (simply to turn Chet loose on some first-class standard-ballad compositions) and, quite importantly, one of those casually all-star lineups that the jazz scene of those days made possible: Bill Evans, Kenny Burrell, Herbie Mann, Pepper Adams, Paul Chambers, Connie Kay, and Philly Joe Jones.

5 Stars for the Music, 3 Stars for the Mastering Job

Just an FYI for anyone thinking about buying this. There is a small, but noticeable DIGITAL GLITCH on "How High the Moon" on this pressing of the LP. In this case QRP's excellent pressing job doesn't matter because whomever mastered this screwed up. Try to find an older pressing. I did, and it doesn't have the glitch. Can't really recommend this version unless a friend is giving it to you for free.
