Back side text:
The music on this CD put Chet Baker on the scene not just as a brilliant trumpeter, but also as a talented singer. These songs were a revelation a the time and won Baker new fame and a new audience, which was less familiar with jazz than with pop music. The reasons are quite clear: Chet's voice is tender and beautiful, and at the same time his phrasing always swings and surprises. Ten tracks from two additional vocal sessions have been included here as a bonus.
