Chet Baker & Strings

CD (Item 512476) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Chet's only session for Columbia, arranged in conjunction with the Pacific Jazz label – which seems strange for some reason, because Baker hardly needed to move to a big label, given his success on the LA indie scene. Still, Richard Bock and the Pacific Jazz crew are firmly in place here – and despite the presence of added strings, players like Zoot Sims, Russ Freeman, and Bud Shank keep a nice west coast groove that fits well with Baker's breathy trumpet. Titles include "Love", "The Wind", "A Little Duet", and "Trickleydidlier".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

A surprisingly great electric session by Chet Baker from the 70s – and a record that's got a bit more force and power than most of his other sets at the time! The format here is a bit tighter and more focused than Baker's recordings for CTI from the period – with electric piano from ... CD

Lost material by Chet Baker – recorded for his late 70s album You Can't Go Home Again, and released in this special package after his untimely death in 1988. As with the album that did get released, there's a focus here that's a nice change from some of Baker's looser European material of ... CD

Miles Davis

On The Corner
Columbia, 1972. Used
A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too! The tracks are long, the jams are hard, and the whole thing has a lot more funk than some of the noise you'd get on other Miles albums of the time – thanks to ... CD
Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used Gatefold
The drum method here is often hard and heavy – a very funky style that makes the album one of the grooviest ever recorded by Japanese drummer Takeshi Inomata! The group here is his Sound Ltd ensemble – a bigger lineup directed by Norio Maeda with plenty of funky styles – almost a ... CD

Miles In Tokyo
Columbia/Legacy, 1964. Used

Sextant
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come! At the height of his 70s powers, Herbie really takes off into space with this set – moving away from more commercial music, and hitting a groove that's totally righteous, totally electric, ... CD
