This is an astounding recording!
With sound remastered as if it were recorded in the year 2001 instead of in 1956, Chet Baker and various other stellar performers made supremely beautiful music for the Barclay label. The fourteen songs collected on this CD are the best of the best. Written by the likes of the Gershwins, Rodgers & Hart, Dietz & Schwartz and others, this is a gorgeous recording--- very accessible, breathtakingly beautiful music, late night-sounding, sexy stuff with Chet Baker and his pals: jazz performers nonpareil. (including genius-pianist Dick Twardzik who died tragically after the first two recording sessions).
Baker's trumpet playing is nothing less than perfect and his one vocal on the final number, "Everything Happens To Me" is sweet and sad.
The packaging is beautiful: the liner notes are short, but informative and there are several terrific, sepia toned photographs from the Paris sessions and concerts. Highly Recommended.

Got this CD about a week ago and have not been able to stop playing it since. Just a terrific album. "Cool Jazz." Here it is. I like the fact he keeps it mellow and unhurried, unlike some musicians, who think they have to keep hitting the high note in order to prove something--but then Chet Baker was known for his understated, smooth style. I love the music here. A real winner.

I was put on to this record by Hans Peters, a Detroit audiophile who recommended it highly. I was not misled. This CD exemplifies the cool West Coast scene but in a European context. There are shades of Curthis Counce's trumpet player Jack Sheldon as the tracks bring back those memories of the Barclay Sessions. One of the best periods of Baker's recording career, highly recommended.

This is a "best of" culled from Chet Baker in Paris, a 4 CD set of which the only remaining CD in print is Vol. 2, "Everything Happens to Me".

Mood changes a lot or seems to. The first CD in the series, Chet was with arguably his best pianist, Dick Twardzik (sp?), and the tunes are upbeat originals. Then Twardzik died. This seems to have affected Chet, tunes from Vol. 2 "Everything Happens" are mostly the deeply melancholy, sad ballads and standards Chet is famous for.

This CD is a good panorama of Chet's best period, after leaving Gerry Mulligan, before his personal problems overtook him. Improved remastering on the recordings.

Alternately warm and romantic, sad, and cheerful.
