4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This release presents the complete original album "Chet Baker Big Band" (Pacific Jazz PJ-1229), which marked one of the rare occasions on which Chet fronted a large group as a leader. That being said, the formations heard on this LP are never as large as other orchestras, featuring from nine to eleven musicians.

As a bonus, two complete contemporary sessions presenting Chet fronting a group with two other horns, as well as four alternate versions of songs from the Big Band album, recorded for the Barclay label in Paris, France, in 1956.
