"Deep in a Dream" was one of Chet Baker’s most poignant ballad performances. The song’s title was also used to introduce the trumpeter’s life in his best published biography. This set compiles that song along with 19 more recordings that illustrate the immense talents of Chet, both on his instrument and as a vocalist. This material was cut during Baker’s golden period, and covers both his early stages as a member of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet and his diverse projects as a leader in the Fifties (with his own quartet or backed by bigger bands or strings).
