Verified Purchase. I met Chet Baker in Paris during the 's when I was there on a business trip.
I had just left out of the Army at the time and my wife's father had hired me at his firm. I had stopped into Cafe Flore with an associate and noticed Chet Baker at once.
He was hunkered down at a table, nursing a small rum I believe. I walked up to his table and extended my hand. He did not take it but he did a little salute and burped. He had several newspapers. I am very satisfied with this album. I ordered the above thinking it was Blue Note's Tone Poet critically reviewed and acclaimed release of Chet Baker's "Sings", but alas it was not. It wasn't until after receipt of the album, and reading the back cover while listening to it , looking for the various recording procedures and credits, that I realized this recording was not what I thought I ordered.
It was what I would call a "look alike knockoff", produced and issued by Pan-Am. I wouldn't claim i was duped; the product description was there on Amazon if you knew what to look for, and you knew there were lookalike alternatives available at lower prices than Blue Note's. However, it would have been helpful to this trusting buyer to have have had the distinction between the two releases, clearly and fully disclosed up front so that I could have made my choice knowing all the facts.
In fairness, the Pan-am recording sounded pretty good, but it's not what I expected based on the the various, positive critical reviews of Blue Note's release including "Stereophile's". The seller has agreed to accept my return, and I have placed a new order through Amazon for the Blue Note release, albeit at a much higher price.
I'll let you know if it's worth it when I have put it through the paces on my fully tricked out Linn-Sondek turntable. Don Kieselhorst San Francisco, Ca. My cd purchase was complete with the addition of a great AutoRip which includes the band members not mentioned in cd!
Chet Baker Sings just oozes cool, romantic class. Occasionally haunting in sadness too. Oh, and AutoRip also adds lyrics on majority of 14 tunes. Easy 4 stars plus. S I may not need another Chet singing album but I plan on getting another instrumental Baker album.
His trumpet play is definitely worth listening too, also. This is fast becoming one one of my favorite jazz albums. Chet was an incredible musician. This is soft, mellifluous jazz from the s: languorous, evocative, and dreamy. Just listen to the first track: "That Old Feeling. He has a sexy, dreamy voice yet he sings without the embellishments that so many performers feel the need to incorporate esp. There is certainly a time and place for embellishing, so don't get me wrong.
I am just pointing out that Chet's directness brings an immediacy to his album that is both refreshing and alluring, and the music stays with you long after you finish listening. The mixture of sensuousness and aloofness elevates this one above the average jazz standards compilation. As with classical music, collecting jazz recordings can be a daunting and intimidating venture.
One has to navigate through piles of marketing, confusing reissues, and mountains of different albums many compilations, best of's, and so forth. Do yourself a favor: get THIS album. Buying from Amazon gets you the cd plus the digital copy. This is the original "Chet Baker Sings". Chet Baker If your tastes run towards top If you like stuff that is from another time that is just as evocative and cool as humanly possible, then pick this up.
