5 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

The music on this LP put Chet Baker on the scene not just as a brilliant trumpeter, but also as a talented singer. The original 10” LP "Chet Baker Sings" (Pacific Jazz JLP-11) was a revelation at the time and won Baker new fame and a new audience, which was more familiar with pop music than jazz. The reasons are quite clear: Chet’s voice is tender and beautiful, and at the same time his phrasing
always swings and surprises.
