Chet BakerIt Could Happen To You – Chet Baker Sings ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $3.99
A classic album from Chet – and one that's got a perfect mix of vocal and instrumental moments, of the sort you don't find easily on other albums! Chet plays trumpet and sings, and is backed by Kenny Drew, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones – a different style of group from his west coast years, but one that helps give the record a fresher sound too! Tracks are still shortish, with those breathy Baker vocals we love so much – and titles include "It Could Happen To You", "Do It The Hard Way", "Old Devil Moon", "Dancing On The Ceiling", and "The More I See You". Nice cover, too – with Chet sitting on the moon! CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Chet BakerLive In France 1978 ... CD
Gambit (Spain), 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
