Noon Edition

Young Chet: Trumpet And Vocals

Several recent Pacific Jazz re-issues of Chet Baker are the focus of this edition of Night Lights, including Chet Baker Ensemble, Chet Baker Sextet, and Chet Baker Sings and Plays. These recordings were all done between 1953 and 1955, when Baker's star was ascending and he was relatively untroubled by the drug habit that would plague so much of his later life. Players include Bud Shank, Bob Brookmeyer, Jack Montrose, and Bob Gordon.
