In August of 1965 Chet Baker spent a three-day marathon in a studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, recording material as a quintet for Prestige Records, that resulted in five fine albums. Tracks from the fourth album, COOL BURNIN', and the fifth, BOPPIN', are compiled into this release--the third in a series of three CD reissues of these sessions. The outstanding quintet includes the tenor saxophonist George Coleman, who was part of the Miles Davis Quintet. His tough, angular playing is prominently featured throughout, and he is a wonderful foil to Baker's emotional lyricism.
Baker's playing here is inspired: more energized, fiery, and less introspective than his former recordings, which focus more on standard ballads. One can really hear Miles Davis's influence, especially on the tunes "Boudoir" and "Etude in Three." The sessions included many tunes by the late bop legend Tadd Dameron, among which are featured the previously unrecorded moody ballad "Lament For the Living," and "Romas," where Baker takes a killer solo. ON A MISTY NIGHT makes for a very cool listening experience.
