settle back and let this set take you to that small, warm...smoke filled Paris club well past midnight... This is what the rest of 'em are still striving to achieve...a masterpiece...and I still can't find anything like it since....

This is a terrific collection of tunes. Young Chet Baker plays sparsely, deceptively simply, but the notes always seem to be exactly the right notes. I don't know how else to describe his efforts here, but the overall effect of listening to this C.D. is hypnotic, spell-binding, and ultimately, very relaxing.
These are all standards wonderfully performed. This is an album you'll never tire of hearing. Not a bad choice if this is your first Baker album. Chet really nails it. Try it and see if you don't agree.
