Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 31st March
Best of both Baker's on the follow-up to the jazz playboy's Chet Baker 'Sings'. The beauty is the heartbreak and charisma Chet conveys, hardly the most technically gifted singer but what a interpreter of the standards and the treat of his playing so characterful, full of joy and sorrow in equal measure. A lot to dig into with with Chet Baker record and with this Tone Poet edition one can spool over this record like Chet's in the room with us.
Following the success of his vocal debut Chet Baker Sings in 1954, Pacific Jazz brought the rising star trumpeter back into the studio the next year for the sequel Chet Baker Sings and Plays which showcased both sides of Baker’s artistry on a set of standards including his timeless rendition of “Let’s Get Lost.”
This mono Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe tip-on jacket.
