Chet Baker QuintetConservatorio Cherubini – Complete Concert ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956. Used 2CD ... $14.99
The complete 1956 Chet Baker performance at the Conservatorio Cherubini in Italy – augmented by a great set of notes and some excellent bonus work from the same time! The core part of the set features a rare Baker performance from his mid 50s European tour – one that features Chet on trumpet (plus a bit of vocals) – working with a quintet that includes Jean Louis Cheautemps on tenor sax, Francy Boland on piano, Eddie De Haas on bass, and the amazing Charles Saudrais on drums. The tunes are long and driving – often with a harder edge than Baker's American work from the time, in a way that really points the way towards some of the more soul-based recordings of the late 50s. The concert is represented by 8 long tracks that take up all of disc 1 and part of disc 2 – titles that include "Cool Blues", "Chekeetah", "This Is Always", "Ray's Idea", "Night In Tunisia", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "Stella By Starlight", and "Exitus". Other material on the CD includes 2 tracks with the Kurt Edelhagen Orchestra ("Baker 56" and "Bockhanal"), 2 with vocalist Caterina Valente ("I'll Remember April" and "Every Time We Say Goodbye"), 2 from a 1955 Carnegie Hall date ("Night In Tunisia" and "You Don't Know What Love Is"), and 4 from a 1955 Newport Jazz Festival performance (including "Five Brothers", "Tiny's Blues", and "Walkin".)

✨✧ Chet BakerLive In France 1978 ... CD
Domino, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully fluid live set from Chet Baker – recorded in France around the same time as his French studio album Broken Wing – but done in a style that features some especially long takes, and a really relaxed groove! Baker's working here with a quartet that includes Phil Markowitz on piano, Scott Lee on bass, and Jeff Brillinger on drums – in a setting that's got the airiness of some of his studio sessions from later years, but in a way that's also a reflection of Baker's relaxed mood on the date. 2 tracks feature Chet vocalizing – but in a looser, freer way than usual – and titles include a great version of Wayne Shorter's "Beautiful Black Eyes", Michel Legrand's "Once Upon A Summertime", and the tunes "Oh You Crazy Moon", "Love For Sale", and "There Will Never Be Another You". Plus, the CD features a version of "Mister B" from another live date – recorded in 1975 in Nice. CD

✨✧ Chet BakerChet Baker & Crew ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Used ... $4.99
Killer work from the late 50's by Chet! Although Baker's trumpet playing in the early part of the decade became known as one of the trademark "cool" sounds of the west coast, he started to move towards a sound that was a lot more hardbop at the end of the decade – as you'll hear on this tasty album. The session's got a great (and unlikely) batch of players accompanying Chet – like firey young soul jazz pianist Bobby Timmons, modal grooving bassist Jimmy Bond, and cool tenorist Phil Urso. The set's a great one, and pushes Chet's sound way past the usual stereotypes. Titles include "Medium Rock", "Lucius Lu", "Revelation", and "To Mickey's Memory". Plus, this excellent reissue CD also adds a number of bonus tracks recorded by the same group, but not issued with the original album. Added titles include "Chippyin", "Line For Lyons (vocal version!)", and "Jumpin Off A Clef". CD
