This collection compiles, for the first time ever on a single set, all existing studio recordings of Chet Baker singing from 1953 (his earliest vocal recordings) until 1962. The music on this set put Chet Baker on the scene not just as a brilliant trumpeter, but also as a talented singer. These songs were a revelation at the time and won Baker new fame and a new audience, which was less familiar with jazz than with pop music. The reasons are quite clear: Chet’s voice is tender and beautiful, and at the same time his phrasing always swings and surprises. Among the contents of this set are the complete original albums Chet Baker Sings and Chet Baker Sings It Could Happen to You, plus all other existing vocal sides within that period.


CHET BAKER, vocals & trumpet on all tracks, plus:

Phil Urso (ts), Bud Shank (fl), Russ Freeman, Kenny Drew, Bobby Timmons (p),
Sam Jones, Carson Smith (b), Shelly Manne, Philly Joe Jones (d).
Marty Paich, Len Mercer, Ennio Morricone (arr, cond), among others.
Recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Milan & Rome between 1953 and 1962.
