The troubled trumpeter Chet Baker was a haunting soloist and a romantic, if idiosyncratic, singer. He's heard here in both roles performing a variety of ballads, both as a member of the Gerry Mulligan quartet and accompanied by renowned East Coast musicians, including Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones, and Bill Evans.
