The photographs of William Claxton define the essence of cool – his stunningly intimate images of icons like Chet Baker combine technical innovation and an unerring sense of the moment to forge a singular aesthetic he defined as ‘jazz for the eyes’ - Jason Ankeny (AllMusic) –

CHET BAKER
SEXTET & QUARTET

INCLUDES 1 BONUS TRACK

The original photo here includes Russ Freeman at the piano shoot in Los Angeles 1953. Here we can see him wearing comfortable sandals which contrast against the sophistication of his suit. On the inside we find the iconic picture of him, seated at the piano during a break at the recording studio in Hollywood 1954.
