Chet Baker was one of the most important representatives of the West Coast Cool Jazz movement. His heroin addiction is well documented with his exploits and misadventures wrapped in legendary anecdotes, but thankfully his life story never managed to overshadow his unmistakable talent. Chet Baker has one of the most recognisable sounds of all the jazz musicians in the cannon; his trumpet playing is intimate, simple and delicate with a hint of melancholy that tears at the heartstrings. She Was Too Good To Me was released in 1974 on Creed Taylor's CTI label after a 4 year absence from the scene. And what a comeback: excellent vocal Cool Jazz tunes are interlude with instrumental goodness from the undisputed master of the trumpet.

Quiet and Powerfull

For those of you who think Chet Baker's music is a big downer, please check out this LP. There is something for everybody here. Up-tempo jams, orchestral ballad pop, beutifully smoothe blues and yes, scotch and soda vocals over west coast jazz crawl. This is also one of the quietest vinyl records I have heard. I was startled when the music kicked in. Expertly recorded and mastered. Very powerfull.
