Recorded live at the Cafe Montmartre in Copenhagen in 1985, this is the second in a series of posthumously released Chet Baker concerts on Enja Records. Performing with a quartet, Baker nails another electrifying concert appearance. With the set's lengthy opening tune "But Not For Me," Baker establishes the musical tone for the rest of the evening--an amazing blend of solid rhythm against Baker's free sense of space and lyricism. Baker sings in his trademark style of scattered, whispery phrases and he even plays some piano in a single-note style that reflects his approach to trumpeting. His mature trumpet work is clear, emotionally charged, natural, and personal, and his lines are often unpredictable. The set also includes a haunting and strangely sad "You Go To My Head," which features Baker's hushed, seductive vocals. This recording was never intended for commercial release, so the sound quality is not perfect and there is some audience noise, but it never gets in the way of enjoying this wonderful evening of Chet Baker at the top of his form.
