Chet Baker Chet Baker In New York on LP

The undeniably erratic early career of Chet Baker involved roller-coaster extremes and musical paradoxes. In the '50s, his sound and approach were often compared to Miles Davis, although his greatest successes came in a West Coast setting, began in Gerry Mulligan's cool, piano-less quartet, and often emphasized ballads and soft-toned vocals. But this album - recorded in New York in 1958 - shows Baker in a unique direct assault in Miles Davis territory. East coast vs. West coast debates are almost universal. In the 90's it was hip hop, in the 70's it was funk, and in the 50's it was - you guessed it - bebop. This album was recorded in the thick of the bebop East vs. West wars; Chet Baker, the quintessential West coast trumpet player with a laid back sound meets a stunning east coast rhythm section, the bass and drums (Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones) of which were regular Davis collaborators. The results are unique, masterful and phenomenal!
