iTunes Review

Producer Creed Taylor wisely avoided trying to shoehorn Chet Baker into the slick, fusion-oriented mid-'70s CTI Records sound. Fronting an all-star combo featuring Bob James' twinkling electric piano and Paul Desmond's lyrical alto sax, Baker remains true to his eternally hip '50s sides, tackling a bouncy, gently swinging "Autumn Leaves" and a cool, cerebral take on Hubert Laws' "Funk In Deep Freeze." Baker's two airy vocals, the wistful title track and the haunted "What'll I Do," testify to his gentle way with a ballad.

Best Straight-Ahead Jazz Album of All Time-and, Concierto w/ Jim Hall

OK, there. I said it. When anyone wants to know what 'jazz' is . . . I become vulnerable and give them these CD's. Not fusion. Not neo-classical. Not improvisational.
Just unadulterated jazz with the best of the best... Desmond, Baker, Gadd, and on and on. Can't fail w/ this CD. Enjoy. So blessed by ALL our fantastic musicians.
Thank God for each and every one of them. Sweetness!


Diverse excellent tracks make this a solid album from the vocals of What I'll Do and She Was Too Good to Me to the instrumentals Funk In Deep Freeze and Tangerine. If you don't already have these songs in your collection, then definitely get it. Highly recommended!

Baker's father, Chesney Henry Baker,Sr., was a guitarist who was forced to turn to other work during the Depression; his mother, Vera (Moser) Baker, worked in a perfumery. The family moved from Oklahoma to Glendale,...
