Baker Performs With Herbie Mann, Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones and Connie Kay!

Recorded in December 1958 and January 1959, Chet features the iconic jazz trumpeter Chet Baker performing alongside some of jazz's elite performers including Herbie Mann, Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers and Connie Kay.

The trumpet of Chet Baker is, above all, a lyrical instrument. Every musician, no matter how many different kinds of things he can do, has one area that is essentially home, where he functions most effectively and seems most comfortable. For one man this favored area of operation may be the blues, for another it may be dazzling up-tempo fireworks. For Chet, home is clearly the world of ballads - of good, sound standards that lend themselves to a leisurely tempo and to rich, melodic, and often moody interpretation. In such an environment, the romantic sound and conception that Chet possesses seems to flourish extraordinarily well. And it is this kind of jazz that is to be heard throughout this album.
