This release presents the complete original album Chet: The Lyrical Trumpet of Chet Baker (Riverside RLP12-299), featuring one of Baker’s very few collaborations with painist Bill Evans. Although Baker and Evans were both highly lyrical and introspective players who could have made a marvelous team, they only recorded together on a couple of occasions. Their third and last session together have been added here as a bonus, as well as a beautiful Baker rendition of “Almost Like Being in Love” from the same period.
