The four discs in this Proper box chart the development of Chet Baker with a slew of West Coast players in his earliest days (between 1952-1954) live at the Lighthouse with Jimmy Giuffre, Russ Freeman, and others -- as produced by Les Koenig -- and in the studio, including both pianoless quartets, one with Gerry Mulligan and one with Stan Getz. In addition, there are some other live dates with his own band, including a CD full of vocal performances. Given the variance in the sound quality, this set is recommended for hardcore Baker fans only. ~ Thom Jurek
