Chet Baker - The Italian Sessions mp3 album
Throughout the 1950s Chet Baker gained fame as a quiet, low-register trumpeter with a cool tone and a relaxed style. This CD should therefore be a major surprise to listeners who believe he was incapable of playing heated material, or of utilizing the upper register of his horn. Assisted by a fine European sextet (including Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute and guitarist Rene Thomas), Baker is heard in peak form throughout this memorable and frequently exciting bop date.

The Italian Sessions. Throughout, Baker's playing is uncommonly crisp as he gets out in front of notes and stays there, never lagging behind or having to reach to hit his mark. He was never known as a bop player, yet this exceptionally recorded date shows he had both the timing and the chops to handle just about anything that came his way. Baker even manages to fit in "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," so fans of the romantic Chet will also have something sigh over.
