In his dual role as a trumpeter and as a singer, Chet Baker was one of the undisputed jazz masters, able to reach climaxes of intense feeling and intimacy. This LP compiles some of his best performances. Among the highlights are âMy Funny Valentineâ, a song Baker made into a classic, âDeep in a Dreamâ, âAlone Togetherâ (featuring Bill Evans), and âLetâs Get Lostâ.

âI studied music at junior college, but at the end of a year-and-a-half I failed that âand I still play by ear. Although I can read, I donât know the chords. I just hear them, you know, but if you ask me what the name of it is, I wouldnât be able to tell you.â
