The best of Chet Baker plays by Chet Baker( Recording )

22 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in 5 languages and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1953-1956 compilation represents Chet Baker's early days recording in Los Angeles. The album is about tightly arranged, uptempo burning than midtempo cool. Of course, Baker's introspective ballad playing is also featured on tracks such as "Moonlight Becomes You" and "Darn that Dream". Overall, however, what makes Baker's conception so unique in his early years, is the light, yet crisp, feel he and his band mates employ. Whether playing bebop or cool, his approach is consistent and, most of all, innovative. In short, it shows Baker's adaptability as well as his versatility
